Changes:

  • Documentation completed and a Mini Tutorial added
  • Interface changes:
    • Test if a value for a tag can be saved is now done in
      MiniExiftool#save
      => There is no check at the moment you set a value:
      the tag occurs in MiniExiftool#changed_values
      => While calling MiniExiftool#save errors can occur (see next point)
    • MiniExiftool#save is a transaction: if one or more error occurs the
      file is not changed! In such a case the errors can be found in
      MiniExiftool#errors
    • Parameter opts of MiniExiftool.initialize is now a Hash with two
      options:
      • :numerical => read metadata as numerical values
      • :composite => read also composite tags
  • Tests added
