[edit] is a Perl script which attempts to rename MP3 files so that they conform to a consistent user-defined naming scheme. It inspects every MP3 in a directory and attempts to work out which part of the MP3 is the artist's name, album name, etc. It then renames each MP3 to follow the user's naming scheme, optionally creating a directory structure and writing an id3v1 or id3v2 tag to the MP3 based on the information it obtains. was designed to be very flexible and can be highly customized through the use of a large number of command line options and a per user configuration file.
