how to burn audio cd from command line

Hello all.
I am looking for a way to copy an audio cd using my cd burner as the input and output device. And I would like to do it command line.

Already played with xcdroast and koncd. These are ok I guess if you want to pick and choose tracks. But I only want to make copies of my audio cd's, not make custom cd's. I have some hard-to-find cd's, some imports ($$$) and some out-of-print (is that the correct term?). I would like to put these in a safe place, and use a copy for everyday use.

Anyone have a suggestion?

ok. looks like u know about cdrdao. u can try checking the ocnfiguration of xcdroast and koncd as there are just gui frontends for the CLI tools (cdrdao, cdrecord, cdparanoia, etc.). they should provide u the syntax u need.
