Mac Unix script
Authored by: james_sorenson on Dec 14, '01 12:08:35PM

My mac to unix path conversion applescript subroutine is already posted here in MacOSX hints. Your conversion routine will still choke if it comes across a name with quotes, but that is extremely rare in CDs.

Your extensive error-checking for writing the tags is intriguing. It seems it would have been a little easier to just assign all tag information through iTunes (rather then as Lame arguments). Is there a problem with that?

I thought about that, but since it was already there i just left it in. I was partly worried about things making it back into iTunes to be finished. I am not completely secure about the whole script->shell->script affair. it would be a lot easier though.....
