Instance Method Details

#closevoid

This method returns an undefined value.

Closes the file and releases all objects that were read from the file (basically everything from the TagLib namespace).

After this method has been called, no other methods on this object may be called. So it's a good idea to always use it like this:

file = TagLib::MPEG::File.new("file.mp3")
# ...
file.close
file = nil

This method should always be called as soon as you're finished with a file. Otherwise the file will only be closed when GC is run, which may be much later. On Windows, this is especially important as the file is locked until it is closed.

As a better alternative to this, use the open class method:

TagLib::MPEG::File.open("file.mp3") do |file|
   # ...
end

See subclasses, as some provide more control over what is saved.
