These are still very much experiemental scripts. The design methodology errs very much on the side of caution for your files. Losing audio is highly unlikely, but other side effects are possible. Use at your own risk. Contains 2 scripts. One for generic presorting that is really just here for my own convenience and is in very early development. The other, however, is a fairly sophisticated tool for normalizing the tags and filenames of your MP3 audio library.
The venerable normalizer script.
normalize.pl Arguments are processed positionally. (So they must be specified in the order listed here). Directory options must all preceed processing options. Usage: normalize.pl [DIRECTORY OPTIONS] [PROCESSING OPTIONS] [PROCESSING ACTIONS] -h, --help prints this message Directory Options -s, --search_dir=DIR where your files to be organized live -r, --root_dir=DIR where your organized files will live; if not specified process is done in-place -b, --backup_dir=DIR the script makes backups for certain transforms; they go here Processing Options -u, --itunes_compat itunes compatability mode. follows itunes file naming pragmas for injecting into a library that lets iTunes "keep media folder organized" Processing Actions -n, --normalize_paths clean up (does the heavy lifting, you usually want this) -i, --locate_lowres_images scans for your normalized folder.jpg files and complains if they are low resolution
A file agnostic presorter. Behavior still hardcoded into head of script -- needs to be parameterized.
