I agree with you. However I do thoroughly enjoy both. I hadn't done a review for the first edition, so I treated it like I would've the first. However, I do still think it's a great text. Not a vast improvement, but I love both editions regardless.

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.
