(Not so) new in dir2ogg is the install.sh script, which automates installation of
the script. You should only use this if you have root access to the computer
you are attempting to install dir2ogg on. If you do not have root access then

To install simply run:
- Tag preservation: mutagen (http://www.sacredchao.net/quodlibet/wiki/Development/Mutagen)
- M4A Conversion: faad or mplayer (ALAC: alac-decoder)
- WMA Conversion: mplayer
- MP3 Conversion: mpg123, mpg321, lame or mplayer
- FLAC Conversion: no extra software required (ogg123 from vorbis-tools)
- CD Ripping: cdparanoia, icedax or mplayer
Read the manpage for detailed instructions: "man dir2ogg", or type "dir2ogg
--help" for brief usage details. The script is extremely simple, so you

Dir2ogg can take multiple filenames as arguments, and will Do The Right Thing
based on the file extension. If using the '-d' flag, you may only give directories
as arguments, not filenames and directories
If you wish to convert m4a, wma and/or wav files using -d then the -m, -f and -w
flags must be used respectively (FLAC: --convert-flac). Wav files are deleted
by default, use -p to keep wav files after conversion.
There is also support for CD ripping using the '-c' flag. This functionality
is not well supported, and it may be better to use a different program for
such a task.
