SYNOPSIS

titlefix [-t] [FILENAME|-a|-h|-l]

titlefixid3 [-t] [FILENAME|-a|-h|-l]

titleid3 [-t] [FILENAME|-a|-h|-l]

single[fix][id3] [-t] [FILENAME|-a|-h|-l]

DESCRIPTION

titlefix renames files, correcting titles with standard English title case -- all middle words in an artist or title are capitalized except: articles, prepositions, and conjunctions less than 5 letters long in the artist or title name
When called as titleid3, it uses the formats described below to tag mp3s with ID3V2 and ID3V1 tag info, but does no renaming (for when case is to be preserved).
When called as titlefixid3, it does both renaming and tagging, for example:
 

titlefixid3 "12 Front 242 - One - With The Fire.mp3"

results in this file name:
 

"12 Front 242 - One - With the Fire.mp3"

and tags the file with track number 12, artist "Front 242", and track title "One - With the Fire". The first dash with spaces on each side is considered the delimiter between artist and title. This example:
 

titlefixid3 "11 Danny Elfman - To Die For - Main Titles.mp3"

would not change the filename, since To and For are start and end words within the phrase separated by the spaced dash in the title.
 

NOTES

One of these formats must be used for each mp3 file (titleid3 and titlefixid3):
 

NN Artist - Title.mp3

NN Title.mp3

NN is used for the track number, Artist for artist, and Title for title. If the second format is used (i.e., there is no dash surrounded by spaces), no artist will be tagged, and the whole filename (minus the NN and .mp3) will be used as a title. When called as single[fix]id3, it assumes a format "Artist - Title.mp3" (i.e. no track number NN).
 

OPTIONS

-a, --all processes *.mp3 in the current directory
-f, --all-flac

-h, --help displays help and exits (ignores remaining arguments)
