SUSE rpm packages now available

Seems some nice person / people decided to make and release 4.0 rpms - yay. 4.0 for SUSE 10.0 10.1, openSUSE 10.2, 10.3, 11.0

Thanks to Toni Graffy for creating the rpm.

You can also do the SUSE 1 click install for

Might work on creating a .deb for debian and ubuntu myself when I get the time unless someone beats me to it *hint hint hint*.

Thursday, July 10, 2008 perl module install guide

For all users running as a perl script (ie unix & osx) who encounter dependency issues try running these commands:
perl -MCPAN -we 'install "MP3::Tag"'
perl -MCPAN -we 'install "Tk"'
perl -MCPAN -we 'install "Tk::DynaTabFrame"'
Should these commands fail (Tk insists on passing all its tests, for 90% pass is more than enough most times) try force installing the modules:
perl -MCPAN -we 'force install "MP3::Tag"'
perl -MCPAN -we 'force install "Tk"'
perl -MCPAN -we 'force install "Tk::DynaTabFrame"'

On other news, I am slowly working on the cmd line options, if anyone has a copy of the old 2.0 cmd line version please email me. Please feel free to help with the options, Im still deciding on what letters will = what functions.

The initial cmd line version with use the following syntax: -[options] [file/directory]

much like the original 1.0 and 2.0 versions, but once that has been sorted I will do a proper unix style -r --sp:spaces --case [file/directory]

This will come once Im happy with the cmd line code.

4.0 - finally

Well here it is, 4.0 in all its overdue glory.

I am finally happy enough with the code to call it a .0 , plus now my focus can shift to some of my 5.0 goals that have been long overdue. For starters I will be resurrecting the command line interface and implementing a gtk/qt3 gui (all depends on which one is the most portable and support by perl).

I will of course remake the win32 installer and package the source with the release. Its not high on my list of priorities but it will get done. If someone else would like to do it I would be very grateful.

  • enabled block rename window to be resized nicely, same for br_show_list windows (ie br preview).
  • sorted mp3 genres
  • reverted fn_readdir removal of '.' and '..' back to a for loop. I had not noticed but occassionally a dir will list a file before '.' and '..'. this leads to a file being omitted when I truncated the dir array by two. This was a very rare occuring bug that I thought I had allready squashed.
