I have a bunch of pretagged files that are appended by the date. For example: Ramble on Rose (1973-12-19). Some are in this format. Others are in (12-28-88) format (month-day-last two digits of year).
I want to convert them into the format I use which is %title% (month/day/year) for example: Ramble on Rose (12/19/1973).
Once I get that sorted I would like to get the resultant value in %title% (month/day/year) and trasfer the information to the album title in Four digit year-Month-Day format). EX: 1995-05-23 - 30 Days of Dead.
I searched but could not find an answer. I cannot figure out how to do it on my own so I thought I would ask to see if some one here did.
MP3tag does not "read" the number, it takes the first number and puts it in last place, takes the second and puts it in first.
That is why I said that the provided regular expression works with the provided sample string.
Hey there! Weir everywhere! Yeah, I am tagging everything by date and then appending the album info at the end in brackets. I am actually writing a manual on my methodology because I find I need a reference as my projects are so varied. Once I am done I would be happy to share.
Please do share! I've written some notes myself, as I have live recordings (FKA bootlegs) from many different sources, for many different groups. And I found I needed different TAG standards for different uses.
So, I thought I had figured our how this works, but I must be dense as I tried to apply these principles to solving the problem of converting an album titled 10/12/1989 to 1989/10/12. Obviously I must be dense because I keep getting 198/10/12 when I use this regular expression:
Can anyone explain why its cutting off the 4th number of the year?
