NAME

AnyData::Format::Mp3 - tied hash and DBI access to Mp3 files

SYNOPSIS

 use AnyData;
 my $playlist = adTie( 'Passwd', ['c:/My Music/'] );
 while (my $song = each %$playlist){
    print $song->{artist} if $song->{genre} eq 'Reggae'
 }
 OR
 use DBI
 my $dbh = DBI->connect('dbi:AnyData:');
 $dbh->func('playlist','Mp3,['c:/My Music'],'ad_catalog');
 my $playlist = $dbh->selectall_arrayref( qq{
     SELECT artist, title FROM playlist WHERE genre = 'Reggae'
 });
 # ... other DBI/SQL operations

DESCRIPTION

This module provides a tied hash interface and a DBI/SQL interface to MP files. It creates an in-memory database or hash from the Mp3 files themselves without actually creating a separate database file. This means that the database is automatically updated just by moving files in or out of the directories.
Many mp3 (mpeg three) music files contain a header describing the song name, artist, and other information about the music.
Simply choose 'Mp3' as the format and give a reference to an array of directories containing mp3 files. Each file in those directories will become a record containing the fields:
 song
 artist
 album
 year
 genre
 filename
 filesize
This module is a submodule of the AnyData.pm and DBD::AnyData.pm modules. Refer to their documentation for further details. copyright 2000, Jeff Zucker <jeff@vpservices.com> all rights reserved
