Response to: perl script in Appendix B ("longsongs")

qq() is an alternate way of quoting strings in Perl. It acts like qq(string) is the same as "string", but is useful if the string you're quoting has quote characters in it, like ours does.


I don't know what other output you got, but I suspect the problem is that some of your tracks are missing author, title or album name fields.

    Yes, you are right. It is that simple (isn't it always?). A lot of my tracks don't have values in some fields. With the information you give in Appendix A, I can 'circumvent' that. Thanks for helping me back on track.
