mp3-archive-tools - tools to maintain an archive of mp3 files

mp3-archive-tools is a set of tools to ease organising a collection of mp3 (and other audio) files. Each tool has its own man page.
Tools included:
mp3id
View/change id3 metadata. Supports ID3v2 and extended frames (pictures, etc).
filenametoid3
Update id3 metadata from filename.
id3tofilename
Rename file based on id3 metadata.
freedbtofilename
Rename files based on data from freedb webpages (www.freedb.org).
cddbtofilename
Rename files based on data from cddb webpages (www.gracenote.com).
movemusic
Move music files to their correct place in your archive.
update-music-symlinks
Maintain a central link farm pointing to music in various places.
pmv
Rename files using arbitrary perl code.
The file pmv-examples.sh (look in the source distribution or /usr/share/doc/mp3-archive-tools/) contains a set of useful bourne shell functions using pmv.
Commands available:
pmv-stdswap
Swaps round fields in filenames delimited by " - ".
pmv-space2_
converts all spaces in filename to underscores.
pmv-_2space
Converts all underscores in filename to spaces.
pmv-fixcaps
Crude attempt at capitalising filenames.
pmv-fixcase
Much better attempt at capitalising filenames. This requires the Text::Autoformat module from CPAN (www.cpan.org).
pmv-number
Numbers filenames sequentially.
pmv-deepen
converts dirs from "artist - album" to "artist/album"
pmv-flatten
converts dirs from "artist/album" to "artist - album"

freedbtofilename, cddbtofilename, id3tofilename, filenametoid3 and movemusic require the MP3::Archive module, available from the same place you got mp3-archive-tools.
mp3id, filenametoid3 and id3tofilename require the MP3::Tag module, available from www.cpan.org.
If you want to use the example command pmv-fixcase, you will need the Text::Autoformat module, also available from www.cpan.org.

All tools were developed in perl under linux. It should be trivial to get them working on any POSIX based system. If you get them working with windows, let me know.
