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

The script is missing 2 very important items which should be in every Perl script you write and one specifically for your script

use strict; 
use warnings;

use Cwd; # this is a core module

There is no vaild reason to use the backticks to spawn shell commands when there are Perl commands to do the exact same thing, which in this script means all of your backtick commands should go away.

Your GetArtistAlbum sub could be reduced to 1 line and will be more efficient and platform independent.

sub GetArtistAlbum { 
return ( split m!/!, cwd() )[-2,-1];

Here are a few docs you should read.
perldoc Cwd
perldoc -f glob
perldoc -f grep
perldoc -f sort
perldoc -q quoting
perldoc perlstyle
