file detects an ID3 spec that does not exist?
 
Kernel 2.6.21.5, GNU (Slackware 12.0).
File 4.21.

Hi:
Generally, when I want to indagate about the quality of a
recording I have downloaded in the form of an MP3 file,
and in the absence of information provided by the upload-
er, I run the file command on it, and in this way I obtain
the bitrate. This method, however, failed for the following example.
Code:

root@darkstar:/almacen/NEW_WORLD_SYMPHONY/EL_GROSSO/Dvorak - Symphony No. 9 [Bernstein Century]# file 01\ -\ Dvo\?ák\ -\ Symphony\ No.\ 9\ in\ E\ Minor\,\ Op.\ 95\ \'From\ the\ New\ World\'\,\ I.\ Adagio\ -\ Allegro\ molto.mp3
01 - Dvo?ák - Symphony No. 9 in E Minor, Op. 95 'From the New World', I. Adagio - Allegro molto.mp3: Audio file with ID3 version 23.0 tag, MP3 encoding
root@darkstar:/almacen/NEW_WORLD_SYMPHONY/EL_GROSSO/Dvorak - Symphony No. 9 [Bernstein Century]#

First, I know of ID3v2 Frame Specification (version 2.3)
but of no ID3 version 23.0. Second, the bitrate will be
found in the tag but, how do I get it not knowing the
name of the specification. Because, I repeat: what is version
23.0? Is there such a thing as an ID3 version 23.0 tag?

Any suggestion will be welcome. Regards.

No version 23.0 as far as I know. Latest is 2.3. Have you tried running "id3v2 -l" on it?

To run "id3v2 -l" on it. What is "it". I don't get it, excuse me.

"it" being the audio file in question. Your mp3 file.

I am aware of my stupidity being exposed, but my system does not recognize the command id3v2. Unfortunately, if I google or use wikipedia, all I find will about the standard and not about this command. That's for sure.

Freshmeat is a better way to find project pages.

If you want to install it on your Slackware system, search for it on
SlackBuilds.org
. There's a package-building script for it there.

There are a LOT of Slackware users on this forum so if you don't give up you will get all the help you need here. And by the way, you are not stupid. If you were stupid you would not be seeking the help you need.

I understand. But if I'm missing from the thread for a little while, it'll be because I'll be digesting some one or two posts whose side effects, I think, will be of great benefit to me. Thanks for your encouraging words.

Hi:

Back again. The tarball id3v2-0.1.12.tar.gz, its file INSTALL, I print below:
Code:

root@darkstar:/home/semoi/ID3/id3v2-0.1.12# cat INSTALL
To Install:

        1)  Download id3lib version 3.8.3 from http://id3lib.sourceforge.net
        2)  tar zxvf <id3lib tarball>
        3)  cd into id3lib.
        4)  type "./configure"
        5)  type "make"
        6)  type "make install" as root
        7)  cd back into this diretory
        8)  type "make"
        9)  type "make install" as root

        "id3v2 --help" for information on use.
root@darkstar:/home/semoi/ID3/id3v2-0.1.12#

I exactly followed the steps up to step 8. When I typed "make", I received the message "Make: nothing to be done for `all'". It doesn't make much sense to me. Does it? Regards.

Evidently it's pre-compiled. So run "make install". Then you should be good to go.
