Copying an audio CD in Linux

Note for myself, the most straighforward way seems to be

mkdir $cdname
cd $cdname
# probably want--rspeed=something here too, I didn't do that and it went quite slowly
cdrdao read-cd -v 1 toc
#swap cds
cdrdao write -v 1 toc
It's surpisingly slow to read the CD. While trying to find a solution to the speed problem, I stumbled upon some more detailed instructions (which doesn't solve the speed problem but has some more examples).
