Subject: RE: Yet another playlist generator and mp3 renamer
From: Melih ÖZBEK (melih_at_tarim.gov.tr)
Date: 2003-01-08


Hi,

I just compiled a new version which you can sort your playlist by artist
name, album name, song title, duration, bitrate (if they exists in ID3 tags)
and path+filename.

I run the program on my 6 gb of mp3 files (1500 file) it took 2 mins to
generate all the playlists and sort them via USB 1.1 connection.

You can download the program from
http://qv3000MR.virtualave.net/MP3/PlaylistGenerator.zip
This is about 1.3 mb (sorry, it must include VB6 runtime dll files)

If you believe you installed a vb program before, you might have those big
runtime dlls, so you can try
http://qv3000MR.virtualave.net/MP3/PLGen.zip

Regards,

Mel

well i sort them in alphabetical order, using path+filename (the whole line)
as key using the Sort function in Minimalistic Build-Environment for win32.
I think it could be possible to sort each generated playlist right after the
prog generated it using a port of unix sort command
