I am trying to run a simple search and replace
my @buffer = split /\=/, `metaflac --show-tag=Artist \"$inFile\" 2>&1`;
my $artist = substr $buffer, 0, length($buffer)-1;
$artist = ~ s/\//-/;
for some reason the output of $artist is 18446744073709551615
As soon as i try and search and replace I no longer a string returned only a long number.
I always find i waste the most time on the simplest of thigns in perl
