+With orpheus, you can control an already running instance of the program using its command-line interface. Assuming you have orpheus running and playing something somewhere in background or in another console, you can ake it to go to the next track. Everything you need to do is to run the following command:
+.B    orpheus -r next
+You'll hear the next song playing soon. Now, there is an overview on what can also be done using the remote command-line interface. Orpheus understands the following commands:
+    next
+        Goes to the next track.
+    prev
+        Plays previous track.
+    add <files..>
+        Adds specified files to the current play list. Please note the
+        command itself and file names must be the same parameters, e.g.
+        be taken into quote characters like this:
+.I            $ orpheus -r "add /home/konst/mp3/song1.mpg"
+        Several files can be specified using this command as well:
+.I            $ orpheus -r "add /home/konst/mp3/song1.mpg /home/konst/mp3/song2.mpg"
+    load <playlist>
+        Loads the speficied play list.
+    play <n>
+        Goes to the track number <n> in the current playlist.
+    Ctrl-L
+    Redraws the screen in any place of program execution. If output of
+    some kind of background programs or system messages spoil your screen
+    just press it so orpheus display is refreshed.
+    Ctrl-Y
+      In a message writing mode removes entire current line.
+    Ctrl-K
+      Single line edit mode.
+      Kills entire content.
