Odd request... allow decimals in track for file naming?

Post by The.Great.ESCape »

I didn't know until recently, but mp3 track tags support decimal numbers. For music, I can't really see a use, but for audiobooks (where you have a series, sometimes the author will write books, prequels or novellas that fit chronologically between the original books) it can be useful. XRecode3 stores the decimal numbers to output file tags just fine, but chops off the decimal when the tag is used for naming purposes. I imagine that's because the program is using an integer to store the variable? Integers do take less memory so that's the most efficient way to code it.

Then there's some weird person like me that would actually like to use the decimals sometimes. Would it be possible to allow for a non-integer variable to be used...maybe as a checkbox buried in the options just for oddballs like me?

Here's the update to try - https://xrecode.com/test/setup_xrecode3 ... _1.112.exe.
It will now leave the track as is if it contains a dot or a comma.
