As freedbtofilename works by scraping the web page, it can easily break if they redesign the web site. If that happens, check the address below for an update.
As freedbtofilename uses data from the web page, unlike many other freedb/cddb based tools, it has no need for the original CD.
Input from freedbfile can be either html or formatted output from lynx(1) (either from "lynx -dump page.html" or from pressing p then selecting Save to a local file from within lynx (when you have found the page you want). If raw html is passed to freedbtofilename, it runs lynx to format it before parsing.
MP3::Archive(3) is used for creating filenames and deciding whether a particular track should be treated as an album or non-album track (unless overridden by -a or -t), see MP3::Archive::Config for details on configuring .mp3archiverc to specify your filename styles.
