* read, write, remove id3v1 and id3v2 tags
* only 2.3 version is supported for writings id3v2 tags

== SYNOPSIS:
  
a good exercise is to read the test.rb to understand how the library works deeper

  require "mp3info"
  # read and display infos & tags
  Mp3Info.open("myfile.mp3") do |mp3info|
    puts mp3info
  end

  # read/write tag1 and tag2 with Mp3Info#tag attribute
  # when reading tag2 have priority over tag1
  # when writing, each tag is written.
  Mp3Info.open("myfile.mp3") do |mp3|
    puts mp3.tag.title   
    puts mp3.tag.artist   
    puts mp3.tag.album
    puts mp3.tag.tracknum
    mp3.tag.title = "track title"
    mp3.tag.artist = "artist name"
  end

  Mp3Info.open("myfile.mp3") do |mp3|
    # you can access four letter v2 tags like this
    puts mp3.tag2.TIT2
    mp3.tag2.TIT2 = "new TIT2"
    # or like that
    mp3.tag2["TIT2"]
    # at this time, only COMM tag is processed after reading and before writing
    # according to ID3v2#options hash
    mp3.tag2.options[:lang] = "FRE"
    mp3.tag2.COMM = "my comment in french, correctly handled when reading and writing"
  end
