I finally got Perl installed and working with ExifTool, sorry for the delay, I had a lot of things on my plate!
Re: [Laurent_R] Parsing data from TXT file into XMP format with ExifTool
[In reply to]
Using the code from Chris I found an error on line 10 every time I ran the script:
open my $filehandle_txt, '<', $filepath_txt or die "cannot open '$filepath_txt': $!";
Even with the script in the same folder as the txt files I get this. However, as the format of the image and accompanying text files means that the file image format is in the same name as the text file, I found the script got confused, so only when I removed that first instance did it even read the file:
Image file: "123.gif"
Sidecar text file: "123.gif.txt"
*this is so that the files stay next to the image file they belong to*
So it won't process the files in the folder, what exactly is going wrong please?
