TCL script to grab music metadata (album, artist, cover art) using API.

Packages required to grab metadata:
- tcl8.5 or higher
- tdom package
- imagemagick (convert is used)

api_key.tcl file with user name and API key need to be created in the same folder with a following data:
set api_key <some_api_key>
set user <some_last_fm_user>

api_key.tcl is used by main.tcl to authorize request send to API.

To grab and save cover art use (recomended):
tclsh scanFileAndSaveCover.tcl <filename>

To grab cover art without scaning mp3 use:
tclsh getMetadata.tcl <artist> <album>

To read id3 tag (ver 1) use:
tclsh readMetadata.tcl <flename>
