Projects / aRanger


aRanger is a one-file Perl script that aims at organizing MP3 files automatically for you. The idea is that you should be able to run the script on a large amount of files to get them organized in a consistent manner according to your desires. It uses the ID3 tags and the filename to deduce artist, title, and so on, so it should work even if there is no ID3 tag. It can write/remove/show ID3 tags.

    Release Notes: The logging feature was fixed such that it now handles '[' and ']' characters in filenames.

    •  29 Jan 2002 19:13

      Release Notes: -m prevents the scripts from using characters in Filenames, which are not allowed when viewed from DOS/Windows. -U creates a ~/ script, which does what it sounds like. When the script is run against a few hundred files at a time, -D is not sufficient. If an ID3 tag contains a "/" in the album name, you should remove it before trying to mkdir %a.

        Release Notes: A template feature (-M) has been added. This option takes a file of filenames and renames the files fed to the script to each filename in the template file. The order is highly significant.

          Release Notes: A bug that made prompt delay the result if you had pressed '?' first was fixed. Miscellaneous bugs, mostly related to undefined values, that caused Perl (with the -w flag) to generate error messages were fixed. mkdir was added to the log. The user preferences file $HOME/.smartid3.rc was added. A test printout that ended up in the logfile was removed. Revert now removes dirs when they are empty.
