My holy grail application is a text-based music tag editor, something like — but not necessarily feature-identical — to EasyTag. I’ve probably harped on that point so much over the past almost-10-years that you’ve probably already tuned me out at this point.
cursetag got me so close today, I could almost taste it.
And then … well, you saw the gif. cursetag can read directories, recognize filetypes, arrange them in order, work a selection bar and then, at the moment of truth … splatters across the asphalt like an egg dropped from the window of a passing car.
I’m not enough of a programming guru to defunkify a floating point exception, although I have the feeling there’s some errant math in there. I won’t explain my logic, except I see a lot of errors reported elsewhere on the ‘net that link floating point exceptions to mathematical no-nos.
It’s a shame though: cursetag is barely a year old, if the github timestamps are accurate. We hardly knew ye.
I got the link to cursetag through AUR, and there is also a git version that I believe pulls in the same code, because both versions crash with similar skid marks.
Ah well. I can take a hint. I shall continue my eternal trudge across the desert, looking for that mystical fountain of curses-based audio tag editing. It’s a lonely life. …
