I'm new here so please tell me if this sort of off-topic posting is
unacceptable, accept my apologies and I'll not do it again!

Is it possible to get Case's command-line tag program (that is bundled
with Flac for windows, I believe) for Linux? I'm building up a new
flack library in anticipation of the arrival of my SB2 and am storing it
on a Debian server. The server doesn't run x, so I need some good
command line tag editing tools. tag is ideal, but to my surprise I
can't find a Linux version anywhere.

Thanks,

Max

I don't know about that program, but I've been pretty happy with taged
http://www.stacken.kth.se/~mhe/taged.shtml (or apt-get install taged
if you're on sid/unstable)
It's command line based, handles id3v2.4, can set your tags based on
file/path info, or vice versa, in the format you specify, handles
batches of files reasonably well, and is the only linux command line
tagger I've found that lets you manipulate arbitrary TXXX tags.

I hope that helps.

If the original poster is looking for something for FLAC files
than anything that deals with ID3 tags isn't likely to work.
Flac uses the Ogg format tags, not ID3 tags like
MP3 and others use.

Metaflac is a command line program that
is usually installed with flac on linux boxes.
It does nearly the same thing as 'tag.exe' does on
windows.

Wow, I totally misread the original message.

I'm not quite sure how that happened. Sorry about that.
