Subject: Re: Announce: id3v2 patch 706111 builds available
From: TP Diffenbach (rockbox_at_diffenbach.org)
Date: 2003-05-25


I thought my documentation was ok, I guess not.

Chop File Prefix removes ("Chop") the beginning ("Prefix") of the file name displayed in the directory browser. It displays the file name from the first character which is of the type given in Character of Type, if At First Matching is set, or from the next character after the matching character, if After First Matching is set.

The point is to remove file prefixes primarily used for sorting (track numbers) which just take up display space.

Examples:
The actual file name is "01- Song Name.mp3"

Character of Type is set to Space, At First Matching is set, " Song Name.mp3" is displayed.
Character of Type is set to Space, After First Matching is set, "Song Name.mp3" is displayed.

Character of Type is set to Punctuation, At First Matching is set, "- Song Name.mp3" is displayed.
Character of Type is set to Punctuation, After First Matching is set, " Song Name.mp3" is displayed.

Character of Type is set to Letter, At First Matching is set, "Song Name.mp3" is displayed.
Character of Type is set to Letter, After First Matching is set, "ong Name.mp3" is displayed.

Character of Type is set to Digit, At First Matching is set, "01- Song Name.mp3" is displayed.
Character of Type is set to Digit, After First Matching is set, "1- Song Name.mp3" is displayed.

Character of Type is set to Letter or Digit, At First Matching is set, "01- Song Name.mp3" is displayed.
Character of Type is set to Letter or Digit, After First Matching is set, "1- Song Name.mp3" is displayed.
