Re: FLAC Frontend

You can create a Flac fingerprint file named ffp.txt at the command line with the following command (assuming metaflac.exe is in your path).

FOR %f IN (*.flac) DO metaflac --show-md5sum --with-filename "%f" >> ffp.txt

If you put this in a batch file, the %f must become %%f in both occurrences.

If you leave out the --with-filename "%f", you get the fingerprints without the filenames.

I got this from the hydrogenaudio thread http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/...howtopic=10773

That should be leave out --with-filename. You need the "%f".

One way to compare a file with shntool output and a file with flac fingerprint output is to write a batch file that strips away everything but the fingerprint and then use the basic file comparison command to compare the two stripped files.

It's not hard to write a batch file that strips the filenames and other stuff out, if you assume you know what the output looks like, that is, flac fingerprints always have the form filename:checksum and shntool fingerprints always have the form checksum [shntool] filename.

It would be more elegant, though, to have a program that recognizes an md5 checksum and strips everything else on the line. And of course it would be nice to have all this in a GUI wrapper where you just indicate the two fingerprint files and say "compare them".

MKWack won't install on my Win2kPro os either. As a result I've never even tried the prog.

Re: FLAC Frontend

Hey Five, I just noticed you have a link to Monkey's Audio in your sig. Is there a way for Mac users to work with .ape files now? It's been awhile since I used it, I was using it before the days of STG and everyone told me to use .shn or .flac.

xACT will do it. Lynne has boatlaods of information on this program, but there's also a link the FAQ freeware section. I'm sure she'll be glad to help though....

Re: FLAC Frontend

No, I run on a windows system. I was wondering if the software had possibly changed to an open platform since my last visit to the APE site. I'll be sure to check out the faq again and look for that info.

Thanks.

Re: FLAC Frontend

it's my understanding that APE doesn't seek on Mac and there is no support for Linux as of yet. I still use it at home because it has the #1 compression ratio.
