First, thanks to the creators of mp3tag for such an excellent product. Goodbye Tag & Rename!
I have a question about the $rand() function. Is there a way to get it to return a random number within certain parameters? For example, I want to randomize the song order in a folder so i'd like to make an action to replace the track number with $rand($num_tracks) or something.
However $rand() does not appear to work like a typical rand() function... it just returns an integer > 0 with no upper limit, it seems. Usually in another language one would use something like int(rand($seed) * $upper_limit), but that's not an option here... or am I missing something? The help file doesn't want to tell me anything more.
As far as I know, you cannot set the boundaries for $rand().
If you want to randomize the track order in a folder and change the track numbers, click on the very first column (where the icons are) and then use the track numbering wizard [CTRL+K].
