I'm a (lazy) programmer. Why repeat it when you can automate it?
Since I do not update the library each time a source has been edited, but maybe just at the end of the day or the week, a script is safer.

@kovidgoyal: Thank you! The --separator : --fields title options are the solution! I wasn't aware of them. Although I use the newest Calibre:
$ calibredb --version
calibredb.exe (calibre 0.9.6)
-h only shows the options --version, -h and --help. With --separator and --fields the rest indeed is easy. Maybe I should have read the online manual more carefully.
