OK, first, I have posted a very similar question like this before. It has been pointed out to me not to repost similar questions. I have a different one about the same thing though.
I have recently finished a 1 semester course on C, that is how familiar I am with C, I can do some things with linked lists and arrays and simple simple simple programs... the course had its emphasis in engineering and numerical analysis....
Anyway, I would like to write a program that can go through my mp3 collection and retrieve songs that have certain information in their file... such as all the songs that have the same album name.
It would be nice if the program could then send these songs to an mp3 player.
These are my questions:
1) How advanced a project is this? Is this very very difficult to do? Would this be something to leave to a real programmer (which I am far from)
2) Would it be too much trouble to do this on C should I look into C++ ? I've never written anything in C that does not use the DOS prompt for input out put data.
3) Could anyone point me in the right direction as a way to start tackling this? I'm not sure where I should look and what I should look for.
