I wanted to build an awesome place for people to discuss module specific issues, but I don't have any more time
for this, and there are much better places to discuss Perl-related issues. I'd recommend asking your question on Stack Overflow or
on Perl Monks.
If you are looking for a Perl tutorial or Perl-related news,
I hope these links will serve you well.
But I do not quite succedd with the same command for a list of files in 'file_list.txt'.
OK, I must admit the tag 'datetimeoriginal' is perfectly updated with this command:
exiftool -Tagsfromfile %d../%f.x3f "-datetimeoriginal" -@ d:\images\2009\file_list.txt
473 image files updated
54 files weren't updated due to errors
- The file_list.txt contains the filenames only.
- 'File_list.txt' must be placed where there are no spaces in the path. (?)
- The command was executed from the folder containing the files that receive the tag 'datetimeorignal' from the X3F one folder up in the brach.
All the German Umlaute like 'ä', 'ö', 'ü' get trashed. 'Graubünden' becomes 'GraubÃ¼nden'. Probably caused by US-ASCII charset.
I bet there is a way to handle this as well since exiftool appears in Japanese.
What would be the syntax to preserve the utf-8 charset in textfields like 'Location', 'State' or 'Description'?
Or, how can I avoid that these values get thouched at all? (seekeing the more elegant way to accomplish this).
Then when using the verboose option '-v', it gets somewhat scarry. Quite some information is displayed, seems as the whole image is being rebuilt.
