... is painful.

Since I'm so cheap (and bored at work, to be honest), I've taken in upon myself to write a perl mp3 parser, tagger, and calaloger (sp?).

Extracting and modifying the text tags for the MP3's is pretty easy using MP3::Tag. Heck, I can even successfully extract the images from the "APIC" tag when I create a nice, pretty web page.

Thing is, I really want to be able to replace or add a new image to certain MP3s, but I can't for the life of me figure out HOW to a) extract the relevant binary information from my album art (jpg and png format) and b) shoehorn said information into the appropriate data slot (APIC) in the MP3 ID3v2 tag.

So ... any ideas on where to look and/or how to proceed?

Thanks a bunch!

UPDATE: Thanks for the html(ish) help, McDarren!

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
