The packages you referenced were both written by Eric Booth.  If you're working on a Mac you could always -viewsource itunes.ado- to see what the author did. I've found it to be a bit easier to do things like that on a Mac vs Windows personally, but I'm sure others have written similar programs on other platforms. You might also want to look up -bash commands- to give you an idea. 

HTH,
