'id3lib' is a software development library for reading, writing, and manipulating meta-information in digital audio files. Currently id3lib supports reading and writing of ID3v1 and ID3v2 tags and other associated tasks such as conversion between tagging formats, identifying valid tags, converting sizes, synchronisation, compression, and padding. It also has a high level of support for the ID3v2 standard, to produce tags that will continue to comply with the standard well into the future.
