This script updates the 'playcount' field associated with a song track contained in iTunes.  The script is meant to be used in conjunction with lastfm_gettracks.

The output of the latter script can be fed in this one. The format of input data input is as follows:

$artist  $track_name  $playcount

where 2 white-spaces are required between each field.  A line beginning with the character # is interpreted as a comment.  The option switch '-e' is required to effect changes to the iTunes database: without this option, the script performs a "simulation" of which database entries would be modified.
