FREEDBTOFILENAME(1)   User Contributed Perl Documentation  FREEDBTOFILENAME(1)

NAME
       freedbtofilename	- rename files according to freedb web page

SYNOPSIS
       freedbtofilename	[-v] [-q] [-d] [-a] [-t] [-g] [-f] [-h]	[freedbfile|-]
       [file.mp3...]

DESCRIPTION
       freedbtofilename	takes data from	the freedb (http://www.freedb.org) web
       page and	renames	files accordingly.

       As freedbtofilename works by scraping the web page, it can easily break
       if they redesign	the web	site. If that happens, check the address below
       for an update.

       As freedbtofilename uses	data from the web page,	unlike many other
       freedb/cddb based tools,	it has no need for the original	CD.

       Input from freedbfile can be either html	or formatted output from
       lynx(1) (either from "lynx -dump	page.html" or from pressing p then
       selecting Save to a local file from within lynx (when you have found
       the page	you want). If raw html is passed to freedbtofilename, it runs
       lynx to format it before	parsing.

       MP3::Archive(3) is used for creating filenames and deciding whether a
       particular track	should be treated as an	album or non-album track
       (unless overridden by -a	or -t),	see MP3::Archive::Config for details
       on configuring .mp3archiverc to specify your filename styles.

OPTIONS
       -v  Verbose output.

       -q  Quiet (no output). This is the default.

       -d  Dry run. Just prints	the changes it would make without actually
	   doing them.

       -a  Treat files as album	tracks.

       -t  Treat files as non-album tracks.

       -g  Guess whether to treat files	as album tracks	or not,	based on the
	   current directory of	the file.

       -f  If the number of files specified does not agree with	the number
	   listed in the freedbfile, normally freedbtofilename will abort.
	   With	this option it will warn you then carry	on, renaming as	many
	   files as it can. Use	with care.

       -h  Show	a short	help message.
