    Re: Hanging perl

    Will do. I am having trouble switching back out of iTunes mode. I
    enter the new path and click change and it says it is changing, then
    I start a rescan and it says that it is rescanning. but later I get a
    message that says that I need to enter the path to my music and it
    gives me a link. Following the link, the music path field is empty. I
    just changed it and rebooted. Will see if that switches it. -Chuck-

    Smart Playlists

    One more question while I am waiting for that library to rebuild. (I
    think that it is just a lot slower for it to rebuild the database
    from the files that it is to rebuild it from the iTunes XML data).

    The reason I switched to using the iTunes integration was for the
    Smart Playlists. They are really nice to use. Are there any plans for
    adding smart playlists? -Chuck-

    It is much slower...

    Do you mean smart playlists native to the SLIMP3 software? Yes.
