Plait (pronounced "play") is a command-line jukebox and music player
front end. It understands brief, easy to type queries that pick a
single song, mix queries that combine works from multiple artists,
stream queries that find Shoutcast radio streams, and everything in
A variety of filters are available to pick just the music you want
to hear. In order to actually play the music it finds, Plait
automatically hands off a play list to one of the supported
music players (or you can use it manually with any player that
supports .m3u playlists).
