The MP3 file format, didn't provide any means for including metadata about the
song. ID3 tags were invented to solve this problem.

You can tell if an MP3 file includes ID3 tags by examining the last 128 bytes of
the file. If they begin with the characters TAG, you have found an ID3 tag.
The format of the tag is as follows:

TAG song album artist comment year genre

The spaces above are just for us humans. The actual tags are fixed-width fields
with no spacing between them. Song, album, artist, and comment are 30 bytes
each. The year is four bytes and the genre just gets one, which is an index
into a list of predefined genres I'll include at the end of this quiz.

A minor change was later made to ID3 tags to allow them to include track
numbers, creating ID3v1.1. In that format, if the 29th byte of a comment is
null and the 30th is not, the 30th byte is an integer representing the track
number.

Later changes evolved ID3v2 which is a scary beast we won't worry about.

This week's Ruby Quiz is to write an ID3 tag parser. Using a library is
cheating. Roll up your sleeves and parse it yourself. It's not hard at all.

If you don't have MP3 files to test your solution on, you can find some free
files at:

zero based, I guess?

I think that the fields order is wrong.
I found this:
TAG song artist album year comment genre

You are right. Sorry about that. I've fixed it on the Ruby Quiz site.

James said:
The format of the tag is as follows:

I assume that the song album artist and comment fields are NUL padded?

The 4 bytes of Year are 4 character and not a 32bit number?

Yes and yes. :)

You are right. Sorry about that. I've fixed it on the Ruby Quiz =20
site.

You fixed one problem, but artist and album are still flipped.

(this didn't come through the first time, trying without the S/MIME =20
signature)

Egad. I must have had a massive dyslexia attack when I wrote that quiz.

It should be fixed now.

id3_tags.rb takes a list of filenames as arguments:

04_Prepare_Yourself.mp3:
song: Prepare Yourself

Here's my solution. Should be pretty straightforward.

Here's a very slightly improved version of id3_tags.rb (which still requires
the other two files I submitted, unchanged). The only change is less ugly
use of String#[], and no more Null constant.

One of the biggest problems in software development is feature creep.
In the case of this Quiz, specification creep was the culprit, with
the spec being changed two times in two days. No offense intended,
JEG2 ;-)

Luckily, we can use the mighty power of Ruby to make our application
impervious to such changes, and save a couple heredocs to boot.

fields = fields.split
genres = genres.split "<br />"

values = IO.read(ARGV.first)[-128..-1].unpack("A3 A30 A30 A30 A4 A30 A")
