The requirements


This software stands under the GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE and comes with NO warranty of any kind. You use it at your own risk.

date version description
22. April 2014 0.7.5
  • Fixed a bug during the cd time calculation (seen on Joe Cocker's "Fire it up")
16. February 2014 0.7.4
  • tk_cdconverter runs now on tcl/tk version 8.6 also
08. November 2009 0.7.3
  • improved the cd-drive detection under OpenBSD


Only try out without installation:

An installation into your system is very easy:

Thats all. Now you can start the program with "tk_cdconverter".

Hint for FreeBSD and OpenBSD-user: on your system the tclsh is installed with a version prefix (e.g. tclsh8.5) but we need a simple "tclsh". Before you can start the program you must set a link: e.g. ln -s /usr/local/bin/tclsh8.5 /usr/local/bin/tclsh


Thats all.

Many thanks to
