Re: [jwhit61] Track. Title format for audio files

Just a quick look through your code I spotted these lines:

$NewText =~ tr/[A-Z]/[a-z]/; #Make everything lowercase  

$NewText =~ s/\b([a-z]+)\B/ucfirst(lc($1))/eg; #Boundary ends with a Number

In the first line the square brackets are not doing anything. The square brackets do not make a character class when using tr///. tr/// is not a regular expression like s/// and m// are. Leaving them in is not hurting anything but they are being treated as literal characters and not as a character class. But to make everything lower-case, use the lc() function:

$text = lc($text);

In the second line, it looks like you would be better using \d instead of \B as the end of pattern anchor. \d is digits 0-9.
