NAME

id3tofilename - renames mp3 files based on id3 metadata

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

<B>id3tofilenameB> [-v] [-q] [-d] [-1] [-2] [-a] [-t] [-g] [-N] [-A] [-L] [-T] [-h] [file.mp3...]

DESCRIPTION

id3tofilename renames mp3 files based on the metadata in id3 tags. For details of how to specify the resulting filename formats, by configuring .mp3archiverc, see MP3::Archive::Config(3).

If any of the <B>-NB>/<B>-AB>/<B>-LB>/<B>-TB> options are set, it gets the remaining data from the current filename, so the filename must already be parsable by MP3::Archive(3). If none of those options are supplied, it defaults to setting all data in the filename from the id3 tags, so the current filename does not have to be in any particular format.

OPTIONS

<B>-vB> Verbose
<B>-qB> Quiet (no output). This is the default.
<B>-dB> Dry run. Just show what it would do.
<B>-1B> Use ID3V1 tag only
<B>-2B> Use ID3V2 tag only
<B>-aB> Treat files as album tracks.
<B>-tB> Treat files as non-album tracks.
<B>-gB> Guess whether to treat files as album tracks or not, based on the current directory of the file.
<B>-NB> Only set the TRKNUM field from id3 tags.
<B>-AB> Only set the ARTIST field from id3 tags.
<B>-LB> Only set the ALBUM field from id3 tags.
<B>-TB> Only set the TRACK field from id3 tags.
<B>-hB> Show a short help message.
