Subject: Re: Play songs by tracknum

Here is a little perl script I I wrote to rename files. If you are using
linux or have Cygwin (www.cygwin.com)

#!/usr/bin/perl

use MP3::Tag;
use Getopt::Long;
my $basedir;
GetOptions(
        "batch" => \$batch,
        "single" => \$single,
        "help" => \$help
);
unless($batch||$single){
        die "usage: mp3rename.pl {--single|--batch}\n";
}
if ( defined($help) ){
        print "usage: mp3rename.pl {--single|--batch}\n";
}

if ( $batch ){
        @ls = split(/\n/,`ls -1`);
        foreach $filename (@ls){
                chomp($filename);
                if ($filename =~ /\.mp3/){
                        RN();
                }
        }
}

if ( $single ){
        $filename = $ARGV[0] or print "You must supply a file\n";
        chomp($filename);
        if ($filename =~ m#/#){
                @path=split(/\//,$filename);
                pop(@path);
                foreach $e (@path){
                        $basedir .= "$e/";
                }
        }
        if ($filename =~ /\.mp3/){
                RN();
        }
}
sub RN{
        $mp3 = MP3::Tag->new($filename);

        # get some information about the file in the easiest way
        ($song, $track, $artist, $album) = $mp3->autoinfo();
        if ( ! defined $track ){die "No Track Data, please use id3tag to
provide\n";}
        $song =~ s/\?//g;
        if ($track <= 9 ){
                $track =~ s/(\d)/0$1/g;
        }
        $mp3->close();
        if ($basedir){
                print "Moving from $filename -> $basedir/$track $song.mp3\n";
                rename ($filename, "$basedir/$track $song.mp3")
        }
        else{
                print "Moving from $filename -> $track $song.mp3\n";
                rename ($filename, "$track $song.mp3")
        }
}
