Query cddb database for info on a disc
cdown cdown [-[0..9]|-d device] [-H H] [-P P] [-V|-?|-h]
The cdown command is a command to query the CD-ROM for track information, use this to fetch information on this CD-ROM from the CDDB databases (freedb.freedb.org), and then output the information in a form suitable for cdir(1).
cdown prints the information it downloads on stdout, in a format suitable for appending to .cdtooldb. Should there be an uncertainty as to which CD-ROM information it should download, it prints a list of alternatives to stderr and prompts for the user to select one.
A network connection is required for this to operate properly.

~/.cdtooldb - default database file.
CDTOOLDBPATH - colon delimited path of database files to search. It is not necessary to specify ~/.cdtooldb, as this is automatically added to the end of the search path.
CDTOOLDEV - device file for cd-rom, overrides compile-time defaults. CDDBHOST - host to query, overrides compile-time default
