       oidua - audio file metadata lister


       oidua [options] directory [...]


       lists  meta data of audio files. What information and how it is presented is customizable.
       It is possible to format output in csv, html, xml or for human beings.


       -B, --bg COLOR
              Set HTML background color

       -D, --date
              Display datestamp header

              Output debug trace to stderr

       -e, --exclude DIRECTORY
              Exclude directory from search

       -f, --file FILE
              write output to file

       -h, --help
              Display help message

       -H, --html
              HTML output

              Don't list files that cause Audiotype failure

       -i, --ignore-case
              Case-insensitive directory sorting

       -I, --indent N
              Set indent to N

       -m, --merge
              Merge identical directories
              Basedirs with identical names are merged. This Means that  all  their  subdirs  are
              considered  being subdirs of a single directory, and therefore sorted and displayed
              together. If there are duplicate names  among  the  subdirs  then  those  are  also

       -o, --output STRING
              Set output format to STRING

              Anything  enclosed  by  brackets  is  considered  a  field.  A  field must have the
              following syntax:





                     TAG is any of the following characters:

                     a      list of bitrates in Audiolist compatible format

                     b      bitrate with suffix (i.e. 192k)

                     B      bitrate in bps

                     d      depth; distance from respective basedir

                     f      number of audio files (including spacers)

                     l      length in minutes and seconds

                     L      length in seconds

                     m      time of last change

                     M      time of last change in seconds since the epoch

                     n      directory name (indented)

                     N      directory name

                     p      profile

                     P      full path

                     q      quality

                     s      size with suffix (i.e. 65.4M)

                     S      size in bytes

                     t      file type

                     T      bitrate type:

                            ~      mixed files

                            C      constant bitrate

                            L      lossless compression

                            V      variable bitrate

                     WIDTH  defines the exact width of the field. The output is cropped  to  this
                            width  if  needed.  Negative  values  will  give left aligned output.
                            Cropping is always done on the right.

                     SUFFIX lets you specify a unit to be concatenated to all non-empty data.
                            Other interpreted sequences are:

                            \[     [

                            \]     ]

                            \n     new line

                            \t     tab character

                     Unescaped brackets are forbidden unless they define a field.

                     Note: If you have any whitespace in your  output  string  you  must  put  it
                     inside quotes or otherwise it will not get parsed right.

              -q, --quiet
                     Omit progress indication

              -s, --strip
                     Strip output of field headers and empty directories

              -S, --stats
                     Display statistics results

              -t, --time
                     Display elapsed time footer

              -T, --text  COLOR
                     Set HTML text color

              -V, --version
                     Display version

              -w, --wildcards
                     Expand wildcards in basedirs
