    shmem doesn't have mp3info, but mp3info2 - which is a perl script ;-)
    [marioroy]: my @music_times = qx(find \$HOME/Music/ Albums/ -type f -iname '*.mp3' -exec mp3info -p "%S\\\n" {} \\;);
    [marioroy]: might need 2 or 3 backslash for \n. Also \\;
    [Lady_Aleena]: shmem, there is MP3::Info/
    [Discipulus]: too much complex qx when you know perl are better to avoid
    [marioroy]: might need to backslash \'*.mp3\'
    [marioroy]: It's a quoting issue inside qx. It's File::Find or qx. LA chooses qx. Almost there.
    [marioroy]: Also \"%S\\\n\" oh my, not fun.
    [Discipulus]: good night folks
    [marioroy]: I will make a mp3info script that takes the -p "%S\n" args and test qx. I'm on the road, so will come back.
