Grip ripping to uppercase?


How can I have grip rip/encode MP3s that have the capitalization of the ID3 tag? Right now, no matter what flags I give the encoder, say if the song is Black by Pearl Jam, it comes out as "black.mp3" in the "pearl jam" directory. How can I have it appear as "Black.mp3" in "Pearl Jam"? Is there something obvious I'm missing?

I don't about how obvious it is, but yes, there's a piece of information you're missing.

It doesn't get the name of the song off the MP3 ident tag at all. It gets it from a public database of albums, kind of like cdda used to be.

So what's happening is that whoever put the original definitions in, put them in in lower case.

You can fix it by clicking the little pencil icon at the bottom of the grip window (the one where you see all the tracks) and editing the group name, song titles, etc. Problem is, that does NOT change it on the database. (I'm not sure if it saves the info anywhere locally on your machine or not.)

Hope this helps,

CHL

Actually, there was an obvious option i was missing. Under the "Misc" section, there is a checkbox labeled "Do not lowercase filenames." I checked it and all is good now

That's a matter of taste and opinion ;)

Capital letters in files/directories in Linux/Unix in my
opinion are a pain in the ass :} ... I've written a little
script that makes all files lower case, and strips silly
things like " ", "\" and apostrophes...

Cheers,
Tink

couldn't you just do something like
Code:
for i in *
do
mv $i `echo $i | tr '[A-Z]' '[a-z]'`
done
?

And why do you think they're a pain (just curious)?
