MP3-ARCHIVE-TOOLS(1)  User Contributed Perl Documentation MP3-ARCHIVE-TOOLS(1)

NAME
       mp3-archive-tools - tools to maintain an	archive	of mp3 files

DESCRIPTION
       mp3-archive-tools is a set of tools to ease organising a	collection of
       mp3 (and	other audio) files. Each tool has its own man page.

       Tools included:

       mp3id
	   View/change id3 metadata. Supports ID3v2 and	extended frames
	   (pictures, etc).

       filenametoid3
	   Update id3 metadata from filename.

       id3tofilename
	   Rename file based on	id3 metadata.

       freedbtofilename
	   Rename files	based on data from freedb webpages (www.freedb.org).

       cddbtofilename
	   Rename files	based on data from cddb	webpages (www.gracenote.com).

       movemusic
	   Move	music files to their correct place in your archive.

       update-music-symlinks
	   Maintain a central link farm	pointing to music in various places.

       pmv Rename files	using arbitrary	perl code.

       The file	pmv-examples.sh	(look in the source distribution or
       /usr/share/doc/mp3-archive-tools/) contains a set of useful bourne
       shell functions using pmv.

       Commands	available:

       pmv-stdswap
	   Swaps round fields in filenames delimited by	" - ".

       pmv-space2_
	   converts all	spaces in filename to underscores.

       pmv-_2space
	   Converts all	underscores in filename	to spaces.

       pmv-fixcaps
	   Crude attempt at capitalising filenames.

       pmv-fixcase
	   Much	better attempt at capitalising filenames. This requires	the
	   Text::Autoformat module from	CPAN (www.cpan.org).

       pmv-number
	   Numbers filenames sequentially.

       pmv-deepen
	   converts dirs from "artist -	album" to "artist/album"

       pmv-flatten
	   converts dirs from "artist/album" to	"artist	- album"

PREREQUISITES
       freedbtofilename, cddbtofilename, id3tofilename,	filenametoid3 and
       movemusic require the MP3::Archive module, available from the same
       place you got mp3-archive-tools.

       mp3id, filenametoid3 and	id3tofilename require the MP3::Tag module,
       available from www.cpan.org.

       If you want to use the example command pmv-fixcase, you will need the
       Text::Autoformat	module,	also available from www.cpan.org.

PORTABILITY
       All tools were developed	in perl	under linux. It	should be trivial to
       get them	working	on any POSIX based system. If you get them working
       with windows, let me know.

BUGS
       None known. Please report any found to ianb@nessie.mcc.ac.uk
