       vorbiscomment - edits Ogg Vorbis comments

       vorbiscomment [-l] file.ogg
       vorbiscomment -a [ -t "tag=value" ] in.ogg out.ogg
       vorbiscomment -w in.ogg out.ogg

       vorbiscomment reads, modifies, and appends Ogg Vorbis audio file metadata tags.

       -a     Append comments.

       -c commentfile
	      Take  comments  from a file. The file is the same format as is output by the the -l
	      option: one element per line in 'tag=value' format.

       -h     Show command help.

       -l     List the comments in the ogg vorbis file.

       -q     Quiet mode.  No messages are displayed.

       -t 'tag=value'
	      Specify a new tag on the command line. Each tag is given as a  single  string.  The
	      part before the '=' is treated as the tag name and the part after as the value.

       -w     Replace  comments with the new set given either on the command line with -t or from
	      a file with -c.

       To just see what comment tags are in a file:

	   vorbiscomment -l file.ogg

       To edit those comments:

	   vorbiscomment -l file.ogg > file.txt
	   [edit the comments in file.txt to your statisfaction]
	   vorbiscomment -w -c file.txt file.ogg newfile.ogg

       To simply add a comment:

	   vorbiscomment -a -t 'ARTIST=No One You Know' file.ogg newfile.ogg

       See http://xiph.org/ogg/vorbis/doc/v-comment.html for documentation on the Ogg Vorbis  tag
       format, including a suggested list of canonical tag names.
