Music file metadata editing software

I want to make a program that edits music file ID3 tags, for example: overwrites all "artist" tags for a list of files with other one.

I know some c++,python and shell scripting.

And I have some questions:

- how can I get just the metadata from a mp3 file? Mplayer shows file metadata before playback, but I could not find a switch for mplayer that displays just the data

- how can I edit the metadata?

- What libraries should I check out if I want to implement this with C++ or python?

- What about "custom" metadata tags? In the foobar2000 media player for m$ i could make my own metadata tags (like "record label"). How can these be edited & added?

Thanks in advance!

Take a look at the id3v2 package.

Or even at eyeD3, written in python.
