Write tags without rewriting file

ajostergaard avatarajostergaard created an issue

Would it be possible to just re-write the tags in the file, not re-write the entire file? Somehow the app "Identify" does this; its writes are really fast. MetaX and MetaZ both rewrite the entire file, which can take 10-20 minutes!

iTunes also doesn't appear to actually rewrite the file.

    The --overWrite (-W) flag should do this. It isn’t enabled by default because this risks corrupting the file in case of, say, a disk error or power loss.

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
