    Question What Programming Language To Use For Editing Music Tags?

    Ey fellas, I was wondering what programming language is best suited(has the most libraries) for editing music tag information within music files. I prefer to use Python, but wouldn't mind learning/using another language if it has better tag-editing libraries. I will primarily be needing to edit mp3 tag files(id3 I believe), but would like to make my program be able to edit any type of tag currently in existence. Thanks!

    well, no langague would have the libraries for that specific a task in their runtime itself, but I'd be suprised if there wern't 3rd party libraries you can import, in most lanagues. I'd stick with python personally. or mabey c#
    Things are rarely just crazy enough to work, but they're frequently just crazy enough to fail hilariously.

    Python should have adequate libid3 bindings.

    A quick google brings this up: http://code.google.com/p/mutagen/

    Thanks for replying so fast. Yeah I meant third party libraries, cool.

    I am currently writing documentation for Amarok (the music player in Kubuntu) and it offers a language build-in for tagging music and editing it as well. Have a look at that

    Aright, thanks for the suggestion, you happen to have any links to it? I'll still try a google search though.
