I have a little problem. I have a collection of 44yrs worth of top hits and the filenames contain the year and the rankings. The mp3 tags are empty. What I am trying to do is to extract information from the filename and place it in the tags.
Here are a couple of examples of the filenames
4 FRESHMEN - GRADUATION DAY (1956 #17).MP3
5 SATINS - IN THE STILL OF THE NIGHT (1956 #24-R3).MP3
BILL DOGGETT - HONKY TONK (PART 1) (1956 #2-R1-13).MP3
The way I would like to do it is extract the artist and title and place it in the appropriate tags. Then out of the () portion which contains the year and ranking extract the 4 digit yr and place it in the year tag. Finally take all the info enclosed within the () containing the year and place it in the comments tag.
Since some songs actually have two sets of () I need to be able to have the script check to make sure that the () contain the year and not text like in the 3rd example.
From reading the help I am pretty sure that I have to use the scripting functions like "$strchr(x,y)" and "$strrchr(x,y)" and "_FILENAME" as part of the command, but that is as far as I have gotten.
Any help would be greatly appreciated since there are 7836 mp3s that I need to edit like this.
