NAME
Music::Tag - Interface for collecting information about music files.
VERSION
Music-Tag-0.4103
DESCRIPTION
Extendable module for working with Music Tags. Music::Tag Is powered by
various plugins that collect data about a song based on whatever
information has already been discovered.
The motivation behind this was to provide a convenient method for fixing
broken tags in music files. This developed into a universal interface to
various music file tagging schemes and a convenient way to augment this
from online databases.
Several plugin modules to find information about a music file and write
it back into the tag are available. These modules will use available
information (REQUIRED DATA VALUES and USED DATA VALUES) and set various
data values back to the tag.
INSTALLATION
To install this module type the following:
perl Makefile.PL
make
make test
make install
IMPORTANT NOTE
If you have installed older versions (older than .25) PLEASE delete the
following scripts from your bin folder: autotag, safetag, quicktag,
musicsort, musicinfo.
If you used any of these scripts, create a symbolic link to musictag for
each.
QUICK INSTALL OF ALL PACKAGES
A bundle is available to quickly install Music::Tag with all plugins. To
install it use:
perl -MCPAN -eshell
At the cpan shell prompt type:
