ruby-mp3info gives you access to low level informations on mp3 files
(bitrate, length, samplerate, etc...). It can read, write, remove id3v1
id3v2 tags. It is written in pure ruby.

This new version add the ability to read, write and delete tag2. I
would like to thanks Chris and all others contributors.

Get tar, zip and gems at

example:"myfile.mp3") do |mp3|
 puts mp3.bitrate
 puts mp3.length #length in seconds

 puts mp3.tag.title
 puts mp3.tag.artist
 puts mp3.tag.album
 puts mp3.tag.tracknum

 puts mp3.tag2.TIT2
 mp3.tag2.TIT2 = "my title"
end #tag is written at close()
