Applet assists with swapping, copying, appending data between track tags

This applet will assist with swapping, copying, and appending data between two user-chosen tags in selected tracks or tracks in the selected playlist:

Swap - swap data between tags, ex: ARTIST<->COMPOSER
Copy - copy data from one to another tag, ex: ARTIST->COMPOSER ARTIST
Append - append data from one tag to the end of another, ex: ARTIST->COMPOSER - ARTIST
Prepend - prepend data from one tag to the beginning of another, ex: ARTIST->ARTIST - COMPOSER


The latter three actions also provide an option to delete the info from the first tag after the copy. Read Me explains all.

For OS X 10.6 or later only. Previous universal version comprised of four separate scripts is available via direct download in the "Info" section below.
