       This manual page documents briefly the bins_edit command.

       This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the
       original program does not have a manual page.  Instead, it has
       documentation in HTML in /usr/share/doc/bins/index.html as well as a
       --help option.

       bins_edit sets values in the XML picture description files that bins(1)
       uses to generate galleries.

       This program follows the usual GNU command line syntax, with long
       options starting with two dashes (`-').  A summary of options is
       included below.

       file      By default, file is the filename of the XML file with the
                 image properties.  If the argument has no .xml suffix, it is
                 added, so you can directly give picture names on the command
                 line.  Spaces and other special characters (even newlines)
                 can be used in values given as parameters as long as they are
                 enclosed between quotes.

                 If the --album option is given, the filename refers to the
                 directory of images, and the album.xml in that directory will
                 be modified instead.


       --album   edit album description (instead of the default of editing the
                 image description.)  In this case, the file parameter must be
                 the source directory of the album.  Only the --title,
                 --longdesc, --shortdesc and --sample
                 switches make sense with this option.


       --html    input value will be interpreted as HTML code, thus, no HTML
                 encoding or quoting will be done.

       -t title

       --title title
                 Set the title (of an image.)

       -e event

       --event event
                 Set the event name (of an album or image.)

       -l location

       --location location
                 Set the location (of an image.)

       -p people

       --people people
                 Set the list of people (of an image.)

       -y date

       --date date
                 Set the date (of an image.)

       -d description

       --description description
                 Set the description (of an image.)

       --longdesc longDescription
                 Set the long description (of an album.)

       --shortdesc shortDescription
                 Set the short description (of an album.)

       --sample pictureFileName
                 Select the sample picture, within this album, to be used on
                 the album list (template subalbum.html.) Note that the
                 filename is relative to the album directory, and thus doesn't
                 have a directory component.

       -g  tag=value

       --generic tag=value
                 This lets you set arbitrary fields in the relevant XML file
                 (of the image or the album.)  Generic tags appear inside
                 description       which appears inside image; the tag appears
                 as the name attribute of a field element, and the value
                 appears as the content of the element.


       --help    Gives quick help (which this man page is based on.)


       --verbose This switch can appear several times to increase verbosity


       --quiet   Suppress output.

       Set the title of the Image.jpg file to "My picture":

       bins_edit -t "My picture" Image.jpg

       Set the title and location of all JPEG pictures in the directory:

       bins_edit --title Holiday --location Paris *.jpg

       Use of HTML values:

       bins_edit --html --description '<b>BINS</b> is cool' file.jpg

       Set the title short description and sample image of the album in the
       current directory (note the dot as final parameter):

       bins_edit -a -t "My Album" --sample image.jpg --shortdesc "This is my
       album" .
