Hey can you guys take a look at this perl script? I'd like to have the same thing for use in mp3tag. ... It basically follows the New York Times Manual of Style to decide on what words are capital, lowercase, etc. which is widely accepted standard in the english language. Perhaps someone here can convert it to a mp3tag script? ...

...

I tried your script, it's alright but I only want it's actions applied to the Title, Artist, and Album fields not the AccurateRipResults/Source/Encoder fields. Can you advise?

Which script did you try? The grammatron or the one from doug?
The latter does not use the _TAG variable to handle more or less all fields...

Thanks, I'll have a look at this and see how it works.

Apologies for the thread bump.

I came across this thread while researching ways to batch fix the titles of my music files. I actually followed a link in the comments of another site whose script I'd already tried which worked well for everything except the filename. It looks like, while this script is well put together and may be helpful, it doesn't fix the issue I'm having.

I always included a space between the track number and the rest of the title in the filename and using these scripts will convert many words to lowercase when I don't want them to e.g. "01 the End". I want to know is there any way to fix this, or is it something I'm just going to have to deal with else be forced to add in another character?


Also, that lightning bolt character for ACϞDC is excellent. I've already edited the two ACϞDC songs I had to include that over a "/".

Do not apply the script to the _FILENAME.
Or:
Update the filename after you have updated the fields with either another action or the converter Tag-Filename.

So there's no way to code something to account for this then, I take it?


Edit: Another point about the scripts. I've noticed that it doesn't seem to alter the capitalisation for some words that other sources suggest it should.

For example "Born to Run" is what wikipedia suggests the song name should be written like, but the filename and tag scripts make it "Born To Run". I'm not an expert on capitalisation rules, but which ought to be right?

There is disagreement on the case of "to" in an infinitive. Some say that it should be capitalised, and in my opinion it often looks better that way in song titles. That's why my scripts include optional sections to force "to" to upper-case before certain common verbs. You can disable those sections, if you wish.

However, all sources agree that when "to" is used as a adverb, it should be "To" in titles. This is one of many situations where capitalisation by script can never be 100% reliable. Mp3tag scripts cannot analyse parts of speech and so cannot detect how a word is being used, which is what would be needed. Therefore, you will always need to make corrections manually after running the scripts.

In the end, these are usage conventions, not rules, so read up on them and make your own decisions.
