       metaflac [ options ] [ operations ] FLACfile ...


       Use metaflac to list, add, remove, or edit metadata in one
       or  more FLAC files.  You may perform one major operation,
       or many shorthand operations at a time.


              Preserve the original modification time in spite of

              Prefix  each  output  line  with the FLAC file name
              (the default if more than one FLAC file  is  speci­

              Do  not  prefix each output line with the FLAC file
              name (the default if only one FLAC file  is  speci­

              By default metaflac tries to use padding where pos­
              sible to avoid rewriting the  entire  file  if  the
              metadata  size  changes.   Use  this option to tell
              metaflac to not take advantage of padding this way.


              Show the MD5 signature from the STREAMINFO block.

              Show  the  minimum  block  size from the STREAMINFO

              Show the maximum block  size  from  the  STREAMINFO

              Show  the  minimum  frame  size from the STREAMINFO

              Show the maximum frame  size  from  the  STREAMINFO

              Show the  vendor  string  from  the  VORBIS_COMMENT

              Show  all Vorbis comment fields where the the field
              name matches 'name'.

              Remove all Vorbis comment fields whose  field  name
              is 'name'.

              Remove  first Vorbis comment field whose field name
              is 'name'.

              Remove all Vorbis comment fields, leaving only  the
              vendor string in the VORBIS_COMMENT block.

              Add  a Vorbis comment field.  The field must comply
              with  the  Vorbis  comment  spec,   of   the   form
              "NAME=VALUE".  If there is currently no VORBIS_COM­
              MENT block, one will be created.

              Import Vorbis comments from a file.   Use  '-'  for
              stdin.  Each line should be of the form NAME=VALUE.
              Multi-line comments are  currently  not  supported.
              Specify  --remove-vc-all  and/or  --no-utf8-convert
              before --import-vc-from if necessary.

              Export Vorbis comments to  a  file.   Use  '-'  for
              stdin.   Each  line will be of the form NAME=VALUE.
              Specify --no-utf8-convert if necessary.

              Import a cuesheet from a file.  Only one FLAC  file
              may  be  specified.   A seekpoint will be added for
              each index point in the cuesheet to  the  SEEKTABLE
              unless --no-cued-seekpoints is specified.

              Export  CUESHEET block to a cuesheet file, suitable
              for use by CD  authoring  software.   Use  '-'  for
              stdin.   Only one FLAC file may be specified on the
              command line.

              Calculates the title and album gains/peaks  of  the

              Add  seek  points to a SEEKTABLE block.  Using #, a
              seek point at that sample number is  added.   Using
              X, a placeholder point is added at the end of a the
              table.  Using #x, # evenly spaced seek points  will
              be added, the first being at sample 0.  Using #s, a
              seekpoint will be added every # seconds (# does not
              have  to be a whole number; it can be, for example,
              9.5, meaning a seekpoint every 9.5 seconds).  If no
              SEEKTABLE  block  exists,  one will be created.  If
              one already exists, points will  be  added  to  the
              existing  table,  and any duplicates will be turned
              into placeholder points.  You may use  many  --add-
              seekpoint  options; the resulting SEEKTABLE will be
              the unique-ified union of all such  values.   Exam­
              ple: --add-seekpoint=100x --add-seekpoint=3.5s will
              add 100 evenly spaced seekpoints  and  a  seekpoint
              every 3.5 seconds.

              Add a padding block of the given length (in bytes).
              The overall length of the new block  will  be  4  +
              length; the extra 4 bytes is for the metadata block


       --list List the contents of one or more metadata blocks to
              stdout.  By default, all metadata blocks are listed
              in text  format.   Use  the  following  options  to
              change this behavior:

                     An  optional  comma-separated  list of block
                     numbers to display.  The  first  block,  the
                     STREAMINFO block, is block 0.


                     An  optional  comma-separated  list of block
                     types  to  included  or  ignored  with  this
                     option.   Use  only  one  of --block-type or
                     --except-block-type.  The valid block  types
                     are: STREAMINFO, PADDING, APPLICATION, SEEK­
                     TABLE, VORBIS_COMMENT.  You may narrow  down
                     the types of APPLICATION blocks displayed as

                     APPLICATION:abcd          The    APPLICATION
                     block(s)  whose  textual repre- sentation of
                     the   4-byte   ID   is    "abcd"    APPLICA­
                     TION:0xXXXXXXXX   The  APPLICATION  block(s)

              Remove one or more metadata blocks from  the  meta­
              data.   Unless --dont-use-padding is specified, the
              blocks will be replaced with padding.  You may  not
              remove the STREAMINFO block.



                     See --list above for usage.

                     Note:    if    both    --block-number    and
                     --[except-]block-type  are  specified,   the
                     result is the logical AND of both arguments.

              Remove all metadata blocks (except  the  STREAMINFO
              block)   from  the  metadata.   Unless  --dont-use-
              padding is specified, the blocks will  be  replaced
              with padding.

              Merge adjacent PADDING blocks into single blocks.

              Move  all PADDING blocks to the end of the metadata
              and merge them into a single block.
