Other things you need to know:

Easy Cardfile Professional uses an external software called

discid which can be found in the package libdiscid-1.1.tar.gz.

This is a library that has been downloaded from MusicBrainz.

As the library is lisenced under LGPL I released the modified source code which can be found in the downloads section.

The only thing that actually has been changed is the file “examples/discid.c” which output I made more machine-readable.

Easy Cardfile Professional does actually not depend on that library but if you wish to use those CD-ROM things with Easy Cardfile

you’ll need it. In the Windows-package a pre-compiled executable is included.
