Edit: @ [proxima]: Again, thanks for your help. FYI: Since Beta 5 I am no longer using the --tofile code, so:

TAG --tocuea --recursive *.wv

... works.  wink.gif

Thanks for your work Syntetic Soul, it is really appreciated.
I'm happy you finally ended up with a successful recursive mode smile.gif

@Synthetic Soul: the new switches you added return always zero even if the input file does not contain an embedded cuesheet. It would be useful for batchfiles creation if you can return "non zero" in this and the other possible failure cases.

edit: i've just found a workaround with batchfiles, i can check for filesize. You can ignore this request wink.gif

I can't really return a non-zero value, as it is not an error, per se, if no cuesheet tag exists.

You can use --tocue/a/n while tagging, or any other action, so returning an error would be inaccurate in many situations.

I could report when no cuesheet tag is found, but I guess that is of no practical use.

Anyway, I'm glad that you found a workaround.

I'm sure TAG.EXE has a long and storied past, but I haven't been able to find that story anywhere. What's the reason that the writing of id3v2 tags is not supported by this tool?

Much of the story I can't explain. I am a relative noob to this forum.

My small part of the story is detailed in this thread. In essence, I wanted to embed a cuesheet in my Monkey's Audio files as part of an automated archive process. I asked Case whether he would add the functionality to set the tag from the contents of a text file and he replied that he had no interest in updating Tag. So, I took it upon myself to add the functionality. I never intended to do anything else with Tag, but although the application was popular, no-one else seemed interested in updating it further, so as libraries that Tag uses were updated I have updated my mods of Tag, in case they are relevant. I have made a few other minor amendments as and when people have requested.

I have always been confused why a competent C(++) programmer has not taken on the role.

I tend to get one or two emails a week regarding Tag. Many ask me when I will add ID3v2 tagging. Sadly, I have to tell them that I simply don't have the skills to implement such a thing. That said, Case didn't add ID3v2 tagging for a reason. He must surely have the skills to utilise the ID3lib library, so I figure that ID3v2 was never meant to be. I have always been concerned about corrupting Tag's good name, and, stupid or not, it seems to me that adding ID3v2 tagging to Tag would be sacrilegious in some way.

I know many people on the forum seem to have a low opinion of ID3v2, stating that it is a poor standard and can result in corrupted files. I can only assume Case subscribed to this thinking.

I for one would like to hear Case's story more. He was posting infrequently when I joined the forum, and seems not to post at all now (hopefully the two events were no related). On checking he was last active two days ago, but hasn't posted for six months.

Is there any way to pipe the output to a text file? Im just trying to read the artist, album and genre tags into my vb app. I could use metaflac but would rather keep tag as its such a versatile tool.

Whenever I do
tag "1.flac" --hideinfo --simple --hidenames >> test.txt

I get a blank text file sad.gif

TAG.EXE --stdout *.* > report.txt

You will need at least version 2.0.44 to use the --stdout switch.

use the --nfo switch!

Edit: Ooops Synthetic_Soul was quicker. However, --nfo works with earlier versions.

Tag.exe doesn't seem to be able to read ID3v2 tags written with foobar2000 0.9. Can you fix that Synthetic Soul?

Sorry, no. I just don't have the knowledge of ID3v2 or C++.

Perhaps it is time that a competent C++ programmer took on the mantle?

Damn, I really hoped tag.exe could write ID3v2!!

I use Helium as tag manager, which reads APEv2 tags, but are appearent not very good at it. If I remove ID3v2 tags and update the "year"-tag, nothing shows up in Helium. I need this to update series of files with a script gathering data from a database.... so now i'm stuck :-(

I have a small feature request. Since foobar2000 started to write tracknumber field in format MM/NN where MM is track number and NN is total tracks count, it is hard to rename tracks using tag. Is it possible to strip '/' and everything after this char from tracknumber field when renaming?

Try loading all of the MP3s whose tags you want to alter into foobar2000, selecting them and removing the TOTALTRACKS field. I have no idea how you could do this with TAG or another program, though.

Do you feel the difference between correcting Tag's functionality and modifing tag information to let Tag work as expected? wink.gif I need this field, I don't want to remove it.

HMM does it pretty much the same way... (Oh and by the way - It actually supports most of the ID3v2 standard which fb2k doesn't wink.gif)

Me too. I understand that this subject is pretty much taboo here, but tag would be so much more useful to me if it just dropped the politics and wrote ID3v2 tags...

I agree as well, and have wanted that feature implemented since the get go and the likes of Winamp and Foobar2000 can write them so I don't see why it was never implemented regardless of "taboo, and paranoia."

Hello

Is there a reason that tag.exe does not create an extended m3u file for TAK files? I tested it with tag.exe --playlist *.tag but it did not creat an extended m3u playlist with the artist / title names.

I'm not familiar with M3U playlists, or Tag's --playlist switch, but I used:

CODE
TAG --playlist *.mp3

... and created:

#EXTINF:309,Lali Puna - 603

Just tried. I got the header (below), but not any track info. I'll try to take a look.

CODE
#EXTM3U
