    Did you get far with the id3lib module?
    • Did you get far with the id3lib module?

      Actually I never touched it because mplib's author replied to me just in time. There were quite a number of fixes to be made: resolving memory-leaks in mplib and - fixed just yesterday - an issue with (apparently) 64bit machines.

      0.02 will be a rewrite from scratch eventually. My first XS attempt turned out to be a mess but after Mail::Transport::Dbx (another XS) I should be able to do things a little more intelligently.

      Anyway, first I have to get rid of my cold. :-
      • Ah, ok. blech has kindly asked me to code up an id3lib module. I'm a little worried about the C++ interface as I've never coded C++ XS. I guess we'll see ;-)
        • Don't worry. id3lib also comes with a C interface so you don't have to leave familiar tracks. Checking for proper C bindings was actually the first thing I did when looking up the id3lib since I am rather reluctant towards C++/XS as well.
