mp3rename - Rename MP3 files according to ID3 information

SYNOPSIS ^

rename_mp3 [options] [file ...]

Options:

    --target XXX        target dir
    --various-artists   use "Various/Album/Artist:_Title"
    --select XXX        selective operation
    --lc                lowercase filenames only
    --test              show what would have been done, but don't do it
    --help              this message
    --ident             show identification
    --verbose           increase verbose information

OPTIONS ^

--target XXX

The target directory where the files are renamed into. Default is relative to the current directory.

--select=XXX

Select only entries that will be renamed to directories (i.e., Artist/Album) that match the pattern.

--lc

Select only entries that do not contain uppercase (or mixed case) characters.

--various-artists

Use an alternative form for the file name, suitable for albums that contain tracks of various artists. See DESCRIPTION. Note that you can abbreviate this conveniently to --va.

--test

Show what would have been done, but don't do it.

--verbose

Show what is being done. Can be specified multiple times to increase verbosity.

--version

Print a version identification to standard output and exits.

--help

Print a brief help message to standard output and exits.

--ident

Prints a program identification before proceeding.

DESCRIPTION ^

mp3rename will read the ID3 information from the given input file(s) and use it to rename the file(s) to a standardized name. Care is taken to not overwrite existing files.

Default file name format is Artist/Album_Title/Track_Number_Track_Title.mp3.

With --various-artists selected: Various/Album_Title/Artist:_Track_Number_Track_Title.mp3.

Attempts are made to sanitize the filename components: underscores instead of spaces, all words titlecased, and problematic characters avoided. Track numbers are always two digits.
