MP3TAG(1)						      General Commands Manual							 MP3TAG(1)

NAME
mp3tag - view and manipulate ID3v1 tags. SYNOPSIS
mp3tag [ -s song ] [ -a artist ] [ -l album ] [ -y year ] [ -e comment ] [ -k track ] [ -g genre ] [ -r ] file [ file ... ] DESCRIPTION
This manual page briefly documents the mp3tag command. This manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the orig- inal program does not have one. mp3tag is a program that allows you to both view and manipulate ID3v1 metadata tags. Running the command with just a filename will display the file's current tag. Setting some options will cause the tag to be updated and displayed. OPTIONS
-a artist Set the artist name to artist. Strings over thirty characters are truncated. -e comment Set the comment to comment. Strings over thirty characters are truncated. -g genre Set the genre to genre. This is a single integer with a value of 0 to 254 corresponding to the appropriate Winamp compatible genre (use '-g list' to list all supported genres). -k track Set the track number to track. This is a single integer with a value of 0 to 255. Specifying this field truncates the comment field to twenty-eight characters, as per the ID3v1.1 standard. -l album Set the album name to album. Strings over thirty characters are truncated. -r Merge new tag with any preexisting tag in the file. -s song Set the song name to song. Strings over thirty characters are truncated. -y year Set the year to year. Strings over four characters are truncated. EXAMPLES
Display foo.mp3's current ID3v1 info: mp3tag foo.mp3 Set foo.mp3's artist to 'Bar', and album to 'Baz': mp3tag -a Bar -l Baz foo.mp3 Set foo.mp3's year to 2001, merging it with any tag already present: mp3tag -y 2001 -r foo.mp3 AUTHOR

NAME
MP3::Tag::File - Module for reading / writing files SYNOPSIS
my $mp3 = MP3::Tag->new($filename); ($title, $artist, $no, $album, $year) = $mp3->parse_filename(); see MP3::Tag DESCRIPTION
MP3::Tag::File is designed to be called from the MP3::Tag module. It offers possibilities to read/write data from files via read(), write(), truncate(), seek(), tell(), open(), close(); one can find the filename via the filename() method. parse_filename() ($title, $artist, $no, $album, $year) = $mp3->parse_filename($what, $filename); parse_filename() tries to extract information about artist, title, track number, album and year from the filename. (For backward compatibility it may be also called by deprecated name read_filename().) This is likely to fail for a lot of filenames, especially the album will be often wrongly guessed, as the name of the parent directory is taken as album name. $what and $filename are optional. $what maybe title, track, artist, album or year. If $what is defined parse_filename() will return only this element. If $filename is defined this filename will be used and not the real filename which was set by MP3::Tag with "MP3::Tag->new($filename)". Otherwise the actual filename is used (subject to configuration variable "decode_encoding_filename"). Following formats will be hopefully recognized: - album name/artist name - song name.mp3 - album_name/artist_name-song_name.mp3 - album.name/artist.name_song.name.mp3 - album name/(artist name) song name.mp3 - album name/01. artist name - song name.mp3 - album name/artist name - 01 - song.name.mp3 If artist or title end in "(NUMBER)" with 4-digit NUMBER, it is considered the year. title() $title = $mp3->title($filename); Returns the title, guessed from the filename. See also parse_filename(). (For backward compatibility, can be called by deprecated name song().) $filename is optional and will be used instead of the real filename if defined. artist() $artist = $mp3->artist($filename); Returns the artist name, guessed from the filename. See also parse_filename() $filename is optional and will be used instead of the real filename if defined. track() $track = $mp3->track($filename); Returns the track number, guessed from the filename. See also parse_filename() $filename is optional and will be used instead of the real filename if defined. year() $year = $mp3->year($filename); Returns the year, guessed from the filename. See also parse_filename() $filename is optional and will be used instead of the real filename if defined. album() $album = $mp3->album($filename); Returns the album name, guessed from the filename. See also parse_filename() The album name is guessed from the parent directory, so it is very likely to fail. $filename is optional and will be used instead of the real filename if defined. comment() $comment = $mp3->comment($filename); # Always undef genre() $genre = $mp3->genre($filename); # Always undef perl v5.14.2 2009-11-28 MP3::Tag::File(3pm)
