How do you use VorbisComment to remove tags?

I don't see anything in the documentation.  I tried -t "MYTAG=", but that just leaves the tag without changing it.

I don't use vorbiscomment.exe any more. It has no documentation and the syntax doesn't quite seem to conform to what is listed when you type the -h command.

I think you are right that it used to have some sort of remove command, but that command no longer appears when you type -h. Logically it would seem to be '-r' but I don't know.

I now use tag.exe or mp3tag instead.

I need a command-line tool to integrate into a script.  Thanks for the tip about tag.exe!  I didn't know (or had forgotten) that it handles Ogg.

On my linux box, I run this command:

vorbiscomment -w -c /dev/null 01_music_with_bad_comments.ogg

For Windows machines, I supposed substituting "/dev/null" with any empty filename would work.
