rate this thread
on a daily basis. In order to get a grasp on classifying
them under the Windows Shell/Explorer, I would like to add
to each file some properties, both BuiltIn (Author, Title,
Subject, Category, Comments, etc.) as well as Custom (Deadline,
SSN, Employer, etc.).
Ideally, I would like to find some utility that would allow
me to add said properties like so:
AddToPropertySet("OdeToJoy.pdf", "Author", "Beethoven");
I really don't care what language the utility is written in, but
I suspect that Perl is the most advanced language for this use,
with the OLE modules.
I haven't even dowloaded the modules, but it looks like there is
an older one (obsolete perhaps?) OLE::Storage:Property which
seems appropriate enough. On the other hand, there is a newer
module, Win32::OLE which presumably replaced the older one but I
can't find a single mention of "Property".
Which of those two (or any other?) modules should I use?
Or perhaps there is a tool/script out there written already
that will add those properties?
