If you select your Music playlist in iTunes and then choose File->Library->Export Playlist you'll get a tab delimited unicode text file. What does this do that that does not? By the way, if you're interested in taking that exported file and moving it into a FileMaker database, try our freeware iGotta MP3 Collection.

Thank you for your intelligent review, but have you tested the application? I suspect not yet...
With iTunesXMLparser you may do a lot more then just convert the XML into tab text, for example you may select
the fields to export or choose to export only one record per cd.

Excellent ! Just what I needed to make a Filemaker databasr of my ultimate playlist !

One thing on my wishlist would be support for other languages characters

à è ù é ç À È Ç É Ù etc.

they get lost on export.. Thanks ;)

True - it is a great app. Thanks to the developer.

@JO SPOCK: I believe the problem with special characters like umlauts is at your end - I imported the parsed text-file into an OpenOffice spread sheet using Unicode (UTF-8) as encoding scheme - and had no problem with 'ä' etc. - everything is just fine. I checked the exported text file with a text editor (TextEdit doesn‘t get the correct encoding, too) - smart editors like BBEdit get all special characters without any problem.
