Delete those unwanted iTunes songs from your computer Answered

Please keep ion mind I am a complete newbe with Perl. I keyed in the Perl script(?) to do exactly what the title says. I down loaded and installed ActivePerl, Then downloaded EnginSite Lite Perl editor. When I click on the "Run" and "Out Put Warning" I am getting errors on the print statements: example - print("-I-: XML file: $xml_file\n"; -. I believe I have done a careful character by character comparison and found my typing bugs.

Could someone point out what I might be doing wrong. I am running this on a PC not a MAC, but I don't think that is an issue at this point. I have not tried compling yet.

Many many thanks in advance.

On my mac computer, I can drag the unwanted music from the library to the trash icon and it gets deleted.

That is how it is supposed to normally work, MAC or PC. And that is how it did work ...in the beginning. Then I did something and don't know what. At the same time I wound up with a bunch of duplicates. I suspect it had something to do with converting m4p to mp3 (I want to play them on a Sansa) and adding (accidently, I was new) back to the play list. Whatever I did the normal delete does not work. Uninstalling iTunes does not completely uninstall. A fresh install on another computer was OK until I restored, then I was back in the same boat. I know the problem is not common, because I found only one program to do what I need to do.

Granted iTunes has it problems, but I am not about to drop it. And I don't apprecaite your yelling about it. If you don't have an answer then don't.

what do these "errors on the print statements" look like? (is the bolded text the output of the program?) --Purduecer
