[show source]
   # File vorbis_comment.rb
90 def exists?
91   begin
92     fields
93     true
94   rescue InvalidDataError
95     false
96   end
97 end

[show source]
    # File vorbis_comment.rb
105 def fields
106   return @fields if @fields
107   @fields =
108   read_fields
109   @fields
110 end

[show source]
    # File vorbis_comment.rb
113 def pretty_print
114   begin
115     fields.sort.collect{|key, value| "#{key}: #{value.join(', ')}"}.join("\n")
116   rescue OpenError
117     "FILE NOT FOUND!"
118   rescue InvalidDataError, InvalidCommentError
119     "CORRUPT TAG!"
120   end
121 end
