.SH "DESCRIPTION"
id3 is an ID3 v1.1 tag editor. ID3 tags are traditionally put at the end of
compressed streamed audio files to denote information about the audio
contents. Up to thirty characters of Title, Artist, and Album information
can be stored, as well as a 28-character comment, four-digit year, track
number up to 255, and an enumerated genre.

.SH BUGS
The ID3 format has some shortcomings. There is a 1 in 16777216 chance of
your mp3 having a certain bit-pattern, causing id3 to write over the last
128 bytes of your mp3 upon tag creation. If you add a track number to an
ID3 v1.0 tag, the last two characters of the comment string will be
truncated. Any bugs found in
.B id3
should be forwarded to the author, Robert Woodcock <rcw@debian.org>.
