I believe this does it right.

It is important to note that you have the --> at the end, so the string inside the comment cannot end with - or else you will have --->

s/(?<=<!--)(.*?)-->/($_=$1);s|--|-|g;s|-$||;"$_-->"/seg
use this to test it and see what it is matching:
s/(?<=<!--)(.*?)-->/($_=$1);s|--|-|g;s|-$||;"[$_]-->"/seg

He who asks will be a fool for five minutes, but he who doesn't ask will remain a fool for life.

[Lady_Aleena]: shmem, sorry I was outside for a moment moving my car out of hubby's way.
[Lady_Aleena]: shmem, there is ONE song which throws a wrench in the works for both MP3::Info and MP3::Tag.
[shmem]: Lady_Aleena: fix it, or delete it ;-)
[Lady_Aleena]: shmem, I'm not sure how.
[shmem]: well, deleting is done with 'rm' :-P
