    id3 tag editor

    So I am a self proclaimed C newb and my professor must have a good sense of humor because he just went from Hello World, to Rock-Paper-Scissor, and now straight to this.

    The project is I need to make an id3 tag editor for MP3s. The format is that if in the command line, the user types

    id3tagEd FILENAME

    He/she will have printed:

    Title

    Artist

    Album

    Year

    Comment

    Track


    Also if the user specifies:

    id3tagEd FILENAME FIELD-VALUE

    That specific field must be overwritten with the new value.

    Now I am trying to look up what to do but have no idea where to begin. A point in the right direction would be very helpful. Thanks!

    One place to begin is at this ID3 website.

    In terms of C, you need to know how to read and write to a file, but concentrate on reading first.
    C + C++ Compiler: MinGW port of GCC
    Version Control System: Bazaar
