What do you mean by metadata "massaging"? Just text editing? What
format is this metadata in?
Sorry, you're so broad here I'm not sure where to start.
Oxygen, xml spy, emacs, vi for editing. Countless of command line
tools (find, awk, xargs, rename, etc).
Iconv for encoding conversions and issues there.
That's off the top of my head.

I know Excel does a lot of things but I'm looking for other useful software to consider. I'm familiar with Parserat, Notepad++, A Better File Rename and a few others. Any other gems I should know?
