I've written a bunch of Perl programs to play nice tricks with MP3
files. Cutting and concatenating is one of them. For example:
% id3v2 -D *mp3
Stripping id3 tag in "Wish_You_Were_Here.mp3"...id3v1 and v2 stripped.
% perl mp3cut.pl --verbose Wish_You_Were_Here.mp3.cue
1 _at_ 0:00:00 01_Shine_on_You_Crazy_Diamond_(Part_I-V).mp3
2 _at_ 13:32:67 02_Welcome_to_The_Machine.mp3
3 _at_ 21:06:17 03_Have_a_Cigar.mp3
4 _at_ 26:30:47 04_Wish_You_Were_Here.mp3
5 _at_ 31:46:57 05_Shine_on_You_Crazy_Diamond_(Part_vi-Ix).mp3
% cat 0*.mp3 | cmp - Wish_You_Were_Here.mp3
As you can see, the concatenation of the parts is identical to the
original. No need to keep the original and the split parts anymore.
 Should run on any platform that can run Perl.
 I'll be releasing some of these tools in due time. I wrote them for
my personal needs and they need some cleanup + documentation
before general release.
