castget - download RSS enclosures
castget [OPTION...] [CHANNEL IDENTIFIER...]
castget downloads RSS enclosures, for example podcasts, from RSS feeds.
RSS feeds are assigned channel identifiers in the configuration file
.castgetrc. Channels to be processed by
castget are indicated by supplying
the channel identifiers as arguments. If no channel identifiers are provided,
all available channels are processed.
If run without any options,
castget will perform the default action on all
channels to be processed. The default action is to download any enclosure not
already downloaded. Other actions may be performed by supplying one or more
options as arguments.
Catch up with channels and exit.
List available enclosures that have not yet been downloaded, and exit.
Display help and exit.
Output version information and exit.
Restrict operation to new channels only, i.e. to channels that have never been downloaded from or been caught up with before. Note that if a channel is added to the configuration and subsequently removed, its download history is preserved. This means that a channel that has been removed from the configuration file will not be considered as 'new' if it is added to the configuration again at a later time.
Restrict operation to the most recent item in each channel only.
Restrict operation to enclosures whose download URLs match the regular expression
pattern. Note that this will override any regular expression filters given in the configuration file.
Resume aborted downloads. Make sure not to use this option if the RSS feed uses the same filename for multiple enclosures as this will corrupt existing downloads.
Do not print anything except error messages.
Print detailed progress information.
Print (lots of) connection debug information.
Print a progress bar when downloading enclosures.
Override the default filename for the configuration file.
