Format of CD-TEXT packs:
The format of a text pack is explained in (mmc3r10g.pdf, Annex J).
Each pack consists of a 4-bytes are header, 12 byte of payload, and 2 bytes

Each pack consists of a 4-bytes header, 12 byte of payload, and 2 bytes of CRC.
The first byte of each pack tells the pack type (text meaning):
0x80 = Title

Pack types 0x80 to 0x85 and 0x8e contain 0-terminated cleartext.
The meaning of 0x80 to 0x85 should be clear by above list.
More info to 0x8e is given below.
If a text of a track repeats identically for the next track, then it
may be represented by a TAB character (ASCII 9) for single byte texts,
resp. two TAB characters for double byte texts.
(This should be used because 256 * 12 bytes is few space for 99 tracks.)
Pack type 0x86 (Disc Identification) is documented by Sony as "Catalog Number:
(use ASCII Code) Catalog Number of the album". So it is not really binary
but might be non-printable.
Type 0x87 contains 2 binary bytes and 10 or 12 bytes of 0-terminated cleartext.
Pack type 0x87 contains 2 binary bytes and 10 or 12 bytes of 0-terminated
cleartext.
The two binary bytes may or may not be repeated at the start of the follow-up
packs of type 0x87. They form a big-endian index to the following list.
0x0000 = "Not Used"

The following packs record PMIN, PSEC, PFRAME of the POINTs between the

The payload of the last pack is padded by 0s.

Pack type 0x8f summarizes the whole list of text packs of a block.
So there is one group of three 0x8f packs per block.
Nevertheless each 0x8f group tells the highest sequence number and the
language code of all blocks.
