tag database --strip option


What does the --strip option do? I'm looking for an option to have it ignore certain directories when building the database. Like my directory "/_non music" which has mp3 files, but I don't want it to put them in the database.

this would be nice also as i would want my downloaded music in the directories and not my albums in the database

Yes, this would be a great option to have. I run linux so my solution is easy (change the permissions on the dir to 000, then change them back) but when I was using TDT way back when, I suggested this to the author and it got added eventually. So Rockbox should get an option for doing this (no software used with the retail firmware should best Rockbox in *any* way! :)).

The --strip option just strips off some part of the file path off the front. Say, "--strip /home" and your /home/music/file/path becomes /music/file/path in the database. I think.
