The National Library of New Zealand's Metadata Extraction Tool automatically extracts preservation-related metadata from digital files, then output that metadata in XML formats. It can be used through a graphical user interface or command-line interface.
Please take the latest code from 'https://github.com/DIA-NZ/Metadata-Extraction-Tool.git'. The code on source forge will not be updated henceforth as it is moved to github.
How the fuck do you launch the GUI or the script for that matter? Command Prompt says "Home directory could not be guessed. Please set METAHOME in the startup script." When I edit the paths in config.xml and config.bak to the correct folder name it returns the same.
This software is a JOKE. All these five-star reviews were probably written by the same JOKER who saved no time and energy by repeating his (or her) false and misleading little message 33 times. -------------------- This tool is a JOKE because it does nothing for you, the end user. Supposedly it "extracts metadata" from your files. However, you the user have little or NO control as to what that "metadata" means. ------------- Yes, you do have the option of providing your input file. Yes, you do have the option of deleting or re-adding your input file. -------------- However, after you've done all these steps, control is completely taken out of your hand, All you CAN do is a click on a button that says "process". However, you have little or no control as to what that predefined, predetermined "process" is. If you WASTE 4 HOURS, you get NOTHING but a blank files with an "xml" extensions. Is that what you want? Was that THE REASON why you downloaded this tool?
