Great to know you're still using it!

You can use "dtas-ctl current" and parse the YAML output.
Perhaps something along the lines of:

	#!/usr/bin/env ruby
	require 'yaml'
	x = YAML.load `dtas-ctl current`
	if cur = x['current']
	  puts cur['infile']
	elsif x['paused']
	  x = YAML.load `dtas-ctl queue cat`
	  puts Array(x[0])[0]

Fwiw, I never intended the current player protocol to be used
much; but was planning on writing an MPRIS proxy to talk to
dtas-player and encourage users to use existing MPRIS clients

However, MPRIS seems to be a dead-end for text-only clients;
while mpd has a strong following.   So I'll probably start work
on an mpd protocol proxy over holidays, so we'll have a lot more
clients able to use the playback features dtas-player.

Of course, the editing/effects features of dtas will only be
available via the dtas-player protocol, but the MPD-compatible
library will be able to play YAML files intended for
dtas-splitfx (or anything dtas-player understands).
