NAME

     sndfile-metadata-get, sndfile-metadata-set — get or set metadata in a sound file

SYNOPSIS

     sndfile-metadata-get [options] file
     sndfile-metadata-set [options] file
     sndfile-metadata-set [options] input output

DESCRIPTION

     sndfile-metadata-get displays bext and string metadata stored in an audio file.  The
     following options specify what to print.

     --all                 all metadata
     --bext-description    description
     --bext-originator     originator info
     --bext-orig-ref       originator reference
     --bext-umid           Unique Material Identifier
     --bext-orig-date      origination date
     --bext-orig-time      origination time
     --bext-coding-hist    coding history
     --str-title           title
     --str-copyright       copyright
     --str-artist          artist
     --str-comment         comment
     --str-date            creation date
     --str-album           album
     --str-license         license

     sndfile-metadata-set sets bext and string metadata in an audio file if the format supports
     it.  If the file does not contain a BEXT chunk to be modified, the second synopsis must be
     used, where another output file capable of storing the metadata is created.  This file is
     overwritten if it already exists.  The following options take an argument specifying the
     metadata:

     --bext-description       description
     --bext-originator        originator
     --bext-orig-ref          originator reference
     --bext-umid              Unique Material Identifier
     --bext-orig-date         origination date
     --bext-orig-time         origination time
     --bext-coding-hist       coding history
     --bext-time-raf          time reference
     --str-comment            comment
     --str-title              title
     --str-copyright          copyright
     --str-artist             artist
     --str-date               date
     --str-album              album
     --str-license            license

     The following options take no argument:

     --bext-auto-time-date    Set the BEXT time and date to current.
     --bext-auto-time         Set the BEXT time to current.
     --bext-auto-date         Set the BEXT date to current.
     --str-auto-date          Set the string date to current.

EXIT STATUS

     The sndfile-metadata-get utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.
