ID3 Editing and Scripting Tool
Batch modules or batches are
idest module files
located in a set of predefined directories which apply a set of
modifications to the argument files. In other words, batches are
file-modifying counterpart of formats. A batch is invoked using the
--batch (-B) command line option. The batch name
is given as argument to that option. Similarly to the --source
and --format options, the --batch option stops
further argument processing and passes the rest of arguments to the
batch module, which is supposed to remove its option arguments and
leave only the input file names. For example:
$ idest --batch=setpic -f cover.png file.mp3
In this example, ‘setpic’ is the batch module name, ‘-f cover.png’ are its arguments (see setpic), and ‘file.mp3’ is the argument file.
