ID3 Editing and Scripting Tool
The --info (-i) option instructs
to show the structure of input files. The output is formatted as
a sequence of keyword / value pairs, as shown in the example below:
$ idest --info jt_lluny.mp3 file: jt_lluny.mp3 ntags: 2 version: 2.4.0 offset: 0 length: 2131 version: 1.1 offset: 2725554 length: 128
The first two lines show the name of the input file and the number of ID3 tags in it. Following are tag descriptions formatted as three values for each tag. The ‘version’ line shows the tag version (major and minor numbers, separated by dots). The ‘offset’ line shows the offset of this tag in the file, and the ‘length’ line contains size of this tag in bytes.
