He wrote Perl that looked suspiciously like C code in 1998, while working as an intern, and has been trying to cure that bad habit ever since.

MP3::Info goodness

[ #16301 ]

I know I am probably reinventing lots of wheels, both round and other shapes, but its fun.

Hacked an OO module together which stores MP3 information. Thanks to MP3::Info and a few other modules, I scan directories, generate MD5 checksums of each file, rename the file to conform to the format that I currently use (Artist - Title) and keep track of bitrates and so on. All of those go into a SQLite database. Each time a new CD gets ripped, I just scan and add it to the database.

The one thing that I cant do right now is modify ID3 tags (v. 2 isnt supported yet). Wondering if I can hand off to an external utility to do that ? Life would have been simpler if I could just get CDex to write to the SQLite database, but those are the breaks.
