How to get all file attributes including author, title, mp3 tags, etc, in one sweep


Question

I would like to write all meta data (including advanced summary properties) for my files in a windows folder to a csv file. Is there a way to collect all the attributes? I see mp3 files have a different set of attributes compared to jpg files. (c#)

This can also be a script (vb, perl)

Update: by looking at libextractor (thank you) I can see this can be achieved by writing different plugins for different type of files. I gather this meta data is not a simple collection...

In Perl, you can use MP3::Tag or MP3::Info
