aPod: Version 1.5 11 November 2011

aPod is an application to maintain and synchronize your mp3 collection on your
using from a Amiga OS4 computer with usb.

apod is written in perl and utilizes the perl_Reaction interface to the OS4
gui. The interface with the ipod is maintained using the Mac::iPod::GNUpod


aPod now comes with a Amiga style install script which will handle all the below
for you,
using the install script is recommended, but in case you want to install by hand
read on...

NOTE: If installing for the first time, apod requires the following perl modules
to be
installed, if updating you only need to copy the apod and .apodrc files.

Before installing modules please ensure that you have installed the perlpatch
http://os4depot.net/share/development/language/perlpatch.lha over perl
or  that you are using a more recent version of perl.

perl_Reaction version .02 available from (os4depot.net)
Mac::iPod::GNUpod (included)
Audio::Wav (included)
MP3::Info  (included)
MP4::Info (included)
IO::String (included)
Unicode::String (incuded)
XML::Parser (included)

install any of these you don't yet have by CD ing into they're directory,
starting abc-shell and typing,

perl Makefile.PL LINKTYPE=dynamic
make install

copy apod and .apodrc to the location of your choice say work:apod/
assign apod: to this directory.

edit the paths in .apodrc to reflect the name of your ipod etc.


You may need to create the directory
otherwise your ipod requires no special initialization.

Your ipod still requires the apple firmware etc this program only handles
copying of
music file to and from the ipod.

Initial Public Release


The underlying mac::ipod::gnupod module appears to have some problems with
smartplaylists. If you get a problem with this email me, for a workaround.


Mac::iPod::GNUpod offers some sophisticated search options and a variation on
smartplaylists based on these. adding support for these will be done in the not
too far distant future.

Send an Feature requests to me by email and I'll see what I can do...


This work has been largely been to done to fulfill my own needs and to support
the amigaos 4 community in general, but it does take a lot of time so if you
like to make a donation there is a paypal button at
