TagLib Perl binding =================== PREFACE Almost ALL the docus are commented by the original C/C++ lib authors Scott Wheeler at http://developer.kde.org/~wheeler/ , Allan Sandfeld Jenson at firstname.lastname@example.org and Ismael Orenstein at email@example.com. Of course, I modified some parts slightly :-) DESCRIPTION TagLib - a library for reading and editing audio meta data, commonly know as tags. Some goals of TagLib: - A clean, high level, C++ API to handling audio meta data. - Support for at least ID3v1, ID3v2 and Ogg Vorbis comments. - A generic, simple API for the most common tagging related functions. - Binary compatibility between minor releases using the standard KDE/Qt techniques for C++ binary compatibility. - Make the tagging framework extensible by library users; i.e. it will be possible for libarary users to implement additional ID3v2 frames, without modifying the TagLib source (through the use of Abstract Factories and such. Because TagLib desires to be toolkit agnostic, in hope of being widely adopted and the most flexible in licensing TagLib provides many of its own toolkit classes; in fact the only external dependancy that TagLib has, it a semi-sane STL implementation. INSTALLATION To install this module type the following: perl Makefile.PL make make test make install Refer to INSTALL for more details. DEPENDENCIES This module requires these other modules and libraries: libtag.so and taglib-config The latter is provided by the taglib-devel package Note this well It has not been tested with later versions. TESTING Testing has been conducted with the taglib version 1.9.1. Earlier versions may not work as well, due at least to new functionality.` N.B.: A source of packages for Windows, nuget.org, uses their own numbering scheme, which does not reflect the source numbering.
