       id3tool - a command line editor for id3 tags.


       id3tool [options] files ...


       This manual page is for the id3tool command.

       id3tool  is  a  program that can be used to view and edit id3 tags from
       the command line.

       When invoked from the command line with filenames and  no  options,  it
       will display the used fields of the id3 tags.

       When invoked from the command line with filenames and "set" options, it
       will change the id3 tag fields specified to the specified values on all
       the files.

       Due  to limitations in the ID3v1 specification, most fields are limited
       to 30 characters.

       The note field is limited to 28 characters if a track number is in use.

       You  can  force a tag to be v1.1 by using a specifying a non-zero track
       number, or force a tag to be v1.0 by specifying a track number of  zero
