SPECIAL NOTES ON WORKMAN 1.3a mB (hacked)
-----------------------------------------

The package you have is WorkMan 1.3 hacked for smoother working with
several drives under Linux.

The changes in the code are enabled with HACK = -DSBPCD-HACK in 
Makefile.linux. In this distribution, this is the default. If you use
one of the following drives, workman sould now work more correctly:

 - Any drive handled through the sbpcd driver
 - Any drive handled through the mcdx driver

"work more correctly" includes the following:
 - Autodetection of inserted CDs is working. (The correct data is
   displayed, not old data from the previous disc. "-C" no longer needed).
 - disc and track repeat are working at the cost of some unplayed frames.
   (No 'hanging' on the last second(s) of a track).
 
I decided to make /dev/sbpcd the default device if the hack is enabled.

To disable this hack, please comment out the define in Makefile.linux.
After that, you have plain vanilla WorkMan 1.3a.

For other platforms than Linux, *nothing* has changed in this version
compared to WorkMan 1.3a.

The original Author will not support this hacked version. Direct any
questions / flames / tips on this version directly to me.
