Well, Workman is the application while libWorkman
is a library. Obviously, written by the same people.
ascd uses libWorkman for the access to the CD controlling
functions but you do not need the Workman CD player
for that.

The library libWorkman is included in the ascd tar
file that you can find on but it is
not installed automatically (AFAIR). When you download
ascd from other sites you might have a tarfile
that does not contain the libWorkman at all so you
have to get that separately.

Check Denis' ascd home page for the details:
