DESCRIPTION

CompactPlayer is a CD Audio player for SCSI CD-ROMs, similar to MCDP,
YACDP, CDPD, or CDP.

CompactPlayer is compatible with MCDP's CD index files.  In fact, MCDP had
a heavy influence on CompactPlayer, in particular the SCSI routines. 

CompactPlayer has been developed and tested on an Amiga 3000 and Toshiba
XM3601B, using AmigaOS 3.1.  The SCSI chip used was the -4PROTO model.
Compatibility with other CD-ROM devices is unknown.

CompactPlayer uses the ClassAct GUI toolkit.  Source has been included as a
demo of using ClassAct in an application.  However, CompactPlayer can not
be recompiled without the ClassAct developer kit.

SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS

A SCSI-2 CD-ROM or some other CD-ROM device that can be accessed with
SCSI-Direct commands.  Some IDE drives attached to A1200 or A4000 IDE
interface might apply.

Preferably a couple of audio CDs ;)

Some ClassAct gadget classes, included in the archive and installed by the
provided Installer script.

AVAILABILITY

CompactPlayer has been uploaded to Aminet (ftp.netnet.net) and should be
available shortly at the URL:

ftp://ftp.wustl.edu/pub/aminet/disk/cdrom/CompactPlayer.lha (124570)

PRICE

GiftWare.  A small gift or donation would be appreciated if you use
CompactPlayer frequently.  This would also encourage me to continue
development and add features such as programs, random play and intro play,
as well as perhaps a cd.device and/or CD-DA (through SCSI and Amiga audio)
player module.
