Generate postscript for frontcards and traycards for CDs

cdlabelgen’s purpose in life is twofold

   o To be run automatically and swiftly from a shell script
        and automatically generate a frontcard and a traycard
        for a cd--usually data archive cd's. The traycard
        which goes behind the CD itself is U-shaped and the
        ends of the CD case bear the label of what the CD is.

   o To have a minimum of dependencies--cdlabelgen only
        requires perl.

   cdlabelgen was designed to simplify the process of
   generating labels for CD's. It originated as a program to
   allow auto generation of frontcards and traycards for CD's
   burned via an automated mechanism specifically for
   archiving data, but has now become popular for labelling
   CD compilations of mp3's, and copies of CDs. Note that
   cdlabelgen does not actually print anything--it just spits
   out postscript, which you can then do with as you please.
