Randomplay plays your music collection (or execute any arbitrary commands on
any arbitrary filetypes) in random order, remembering songs played across
sessions. It also has many features to make command-line music playing more
convenient, including recursive regexp searching for tracks and the ability to
specify a certain number of tracks, bytes, or minutes to play.  Randomplay
will also generate a list of music files to be loaded onto a portable music
player device.  It includes a 'random weighting' feature, so your favorite
songs are more likely to come up in the random shuffle.
Randomplay is a convenient tool for the user who does everything in an xterm
window or console and is constantly devising complex find/grep/sed command
lines to play just the right set of songs.
