in reply to MP3::Tag - Leading zeros on 'track' truncated

perhaps its not explicitly stripped, it could be that the truncation you see is a result of a math operation..?

    Quite possibly as a result of getting the next track number. It's easy to use math ($t=$t+1) instead of the increment operator ($t++) causing the leading zeroes to be removed. Example:

    $ perl -e 'my $t="00";print ++$t' 01 $ perl -e 'my $t="00";print $t+1' 1

[marto]: so I have to work Saturday, which is good and bad. Bad in the sense that I have to be hear early :( Good in that I am here only as support for another client project, so I get to spend the day working on my personal 'ToDo' list, without the kids :P
[Corion]: marto: Ooof - but yes, being there as only second level support or third level support is good and if you have enough things that you can work on, it won't be a wasted (if paid) day
[marto]: I've opted for a day off later on, rather than pay. I only have to do about 45 mins work for the client, but do need to hang around
[Corion]: marto: Even better ;)
