SYNOPSIS

id3tool [options] files ...

DESCRIPTION

This manual page is for the id3tool command.

id3tool is a program that can be used to view and edit id3 tags from the command line.

When invoked from the command line with filenames and no options, it will display the used fields of the id3 tags.

When invoked from the command line with filenames and "set" options, it will change the id3 tag fields specified to the specified values on all the files.

Due to limitations in the ID3v1 specification, most fields are limited to 30 characters.

The note field is limited to 28 characters if a track number is in use.

You can force a tag to be v1.1 by using a specifying a non-zero track number, or force a tag to be v1.0 by specifying a track number of zero (0).
