Guy wasn't referring to any command-line tools, but to 'grip', a gui based CD player/ripper which acts as a frontend to cdda2wav/cdparanoia, MP3/Oggg encoders and also as a CDDB client. [www.nostatic.org/grip]

What he posted are options that you can set inside that program... just in case the presets don't cover your needs.

If you depend on a command line solution, I think there are quite a bunch of scripts listed at freshmeat.net that might help you out. I have not bothered to check whether you can do this stuff directly with cdda2wav or cdparanoia...
