in thread MP3 server with IO::Socket

Hey, I thought this was very clever, but thought I'd shorten it into the worlds smallest (and least feature-full) MP3 server:
#!/bin/bash PLAYLIST=`find ./content -name *.mp3` NUM=`echo $PLAYLIST | wc -w` { while true; do rand=$(($RANDOM%$NUM)) song=`echo $PLAYLIST | cut -d ' ' -f$rand` echo "HTTP/1.0 200 OK\nContent-Type: audio/x-mp3stream\n\n" dd if=$song bs=1024 done } | nc -l -p 8020
Broadcasting to the entire world! :)

    No, this would be the shortest.. and a command line command:
    while true; do NUM=`find /home/MP3/Bob_marley/*.mp3 | wc -l`; rand=$(( +$RANDOM%$NUM)); song=`find /home/MP3/Bob_marley/*.mp3 | sed -n ${rand +}p`; echo "HTTP/1.0 200 OK\nContent-Type: audio/x-mp3stream\n\n"; dd +if="$song" bs=1024; done | nc -l -p 8020
