NAME

AnyData::Format::Mp3 - tied hash and DBI access to Mp3 files

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



 use AnyData;
 my $playlist = adTie( Passwd, [c:/My Music/] );
 while (my $song = each %$playlist){
    print $song->{artist} if $song->{genre} eq Reggae
 }

 OR

 use DBI
 my $dbh = DBI->connect(dbi:AnyData:);
 $dbh->func(playlist,Mp3,[c:/My Music],ad_catalog);
 my $playlist = $dbh->selectall_arrayref( qq{
     SELECT artist, title FROM playlist WHERE genre = Reggae
 });
 # ... other DBI/SQL operations



DESCRIPTION

This module provides a tied hash interface and a DBI/SQL interface to MP files. It creates an in-memory database or hash from the Mp3 files themselves without actually creating a separate database file. This means that the database is automatically updated just by moving files in or out of the directories.

Many mp3 (mpeg three) music files contain a header describing the song name, artist, and other information about the music.

Simply choose ’Mp3’ as the format and give a reference to an array of directories containing mp3 files. Each file in those directories will become a record containing the fields:



 song
 artist
 album
 year
 genre
 filename
 filesize



This module is a submodule of the AnyData.pm and DBD::AnyData.pm modules. Refer to their documentation for further details.
