Herrie is a command line music player. It has a split-screen file manager and playlist interface and supports a number of file formats (MP3, Ogg Vorbis, wave, FLAC, etc).

Herrie also has some nice features, including a chroot() function for untrusted setups (remote logins, parties, etc). AudioScrobbler is also implemented using Curl.

With S remove song

What's New in This Release:
Some new features were added, but some existing features have been improved.
Randomizing the playlist is a lot faster now (linear instead of quadratic).
The "c" button allows you to change directories by entering the full pathname.
When entering the pathname (or entering a search query), you may now use the ^W and ^U buttons to remove a single word or the entire sentence.
Herrie now uses a lot less terminal I/O during playback, which saves a lot of network traffic when using Herrie through SSH/Telnet/etc.
