ape to flac cue file convert?

Thanks for an interesting comparison.
I have earlier tested out the .ape format and have some of my CDs stored in that format. However - I've recently bought one of the last Logitech Squeezeboxes available and it only supports .flac format.
You shouldn't happen to have an idea of how one can convert the .cue file from an ape ripped CD to work on the .flac file I have converted it to? Would be nice to see the tracks.
Alternatively I'm looking for a utility that would allow me to convert a single album .ape file into separate track .flac files.
Thanks for taking time to read.

Re: ape to flac cue file convert?

That's not something I've ever tried, as I never used Monkey's Audio outside of the tests I ran for the articles on my site. (I use FLAC exclusively for ripping CDs I've purchased.)

Hunting around, it sounds like the usual solution is to convert the ape file to a wav file and then split the wav file into individual tracks. See, for example, Decoding APE to with CUE to tracks from the Hydrogenaudio Forums.

The only automated approach that seems promising is a Convert to FLAC script. But note that I've never used this myself, so I can't vouch for it. It also requires BASH which is great news if you use Linux, but might involve a bit more work in setting things up if you use an operating system which does not boast BASH as a default shell.
