I'm looking for a Linux command line tool that would allow editing tags of Wavpack files after they are encoded, in order to integrate it in big encoding/transcoding shell scripts.
Using the official wvunpack I can easily extract tag values in a script, i.e like that:
title=$(wvunpack "$input_file" -x 'TITLE' 2> /dev/null)

However I can not modify the tags once the wavpack file is created.

I'm currently using lltag (frontend to metaflac, vorbiscomment, etc.) for my tagging needs, but it does not recognize Wavpack files.
Unfortunately Apetag does not seem to support Wavpack either.

Is there any program that could do that, and if not is it possible to do it the hard way using grep, sed, etc ?

Thank you
