Data::BiaB - Analyze Band-in-a-Box data files
This module provides methods to read Band-in-a-Box data files and extract some useful information from them.
Band-in-a-Box is an excellent tool for creating professional music and accompanying tracks. I've been using it for many years but had to abandon it when I phased out Microsoft Windows PCs.
use Data::BiaB; # Load an existing song. my $biab = Data::BiaB->new(); $biab->load("Vaya_Con_Dios.mgu"); # This will show what was gathered. use Data::Dumper; print Dumper($biab);
Many BiaB files fail loading and parsing. If you have a recent version of Band-in-a-Box its MusicXML export feature will be a much better alternative.
This is a hobby project. It is pre-alpha, under development, works for me, caveat emptor and so on. Have fun!

PG Music inc., for making Band-in-a-Box. I've used Band-in-a-Box for several years with great pleasure.
The ancient and abandoned Band-In-A-Box File Converter 'biabconverter' by Alain Brenzikofer inspired me to write this.
