This repository contains various APEv2 tag reader/writer libraries that I've created for different languages. It serves two purposes: 1) The best way to learn a language is to actually start programming in it. Creating an APEv2 reader/writer library is something that requires you get get your hands dirty in the language, without taking too much time. 2) Making sure an APEv2 library is available for more programming languages. I think the ID3v2.x tagging standards for mp3s are terrible and that APEv2 is much simpler and easier. Hopefully with easy API access to APEv2 tags, more programs will start offering APEv2 tagging as an alternative to ID3v2. Also, APEv2 is the tagging standard used in many of the fringe audio formats, so users of those formats will be able to use these libraries to access metadata in the programming language of their choice.
