in reply to Get certain information from MP3::Tag's autoinfo()

From MP3::Tag POD:

autoinfo() returns an array with the information or a hashref. The hash has four keys 'title', 'track', 'artist' and 'album' where the information is stored. If comment, year or genre are found, the hash will have keys 'comment' and/or 'year' and/or 'genre' too.

Try:

my $info = $mp3->autoinfo(); # hashref print $info->{album}; print $info->{artist};

    So that uses less unnecessary space than my initial way of doing it? Because I'm referencing the hash and not actually declaring all of the variables that I don't need?

      You could do this:

      (undef, undef, $artist, $album) = $mp3->autoinfo();

      But I like toolic's solution better.
