Default vgmtag - an utility to tag VGM/VGZ files

Hello everyone.

I'd like to present you a command-line utility that is created to assist with tagging of VGM files (compressed and uncompressed). It is quite simple to start with. For example, the following command sets the english title of the track 'track.vgz' to 'John':
vgmtag --title=John track.vgz

It is written in C++11 and licensed under GPLv3. The source code is available at: https://github.com/dzidzitop/vgmtag

I tested it under Debian Wheezy and GCC 4.7.

Hope some of you will find it useful!

From what I can see, it should also be able to extract the GD3 info (which you can then use to rename).

This program can print the GD3 info. For example:

dzidzitop@z:~$ vgmtag --info ~/"01 - Title Screen.vgz"
File format: VGZ
--------
Title (Latin): Title Screen
Title (Japanese):
Game (Latin): Bugs Bunny in Double Trouble
Game (Japanese):
System (Latin): Sega Mega Drive / Genesis
System (Japanese): セガメガドライブ
Author (Latin): Andy Brock
Author (Japanese):
Date: 1996
Converter: Jackalope
Notes:


To rename the file you just need to rename it, probably using the information printed.
However, it is possible to save the content updated into a different file:

vgmtag --titleJP=SomeName --notes="This is just a test" ~/"01 - Title Screen.vgz" ~/another_file.vgz

Then print the info of the new file and see that it is updated with new tags:

dzidzitop@z:~$ vgmtag --info ~/another_file.vgz
File format: VGZ
--------
Title (Latin): Title Screen
Title (Japanese): SomeName
Game (Latin): Bugs Bunny in Double Trouble
Game (Japanese):
System (Latin): Sega Mega Drive / Genesis
System (Japanese): セガメガドライブ
Author (Latin): Andy Brock
Author (Japanese):
Date: 1996
Converter: Jackalope
Notes: This is just a test


Hope this answers the question.
