SYNOPSIS

castget [OPTION]... [CHANNEL IDENTIFIER]...

DESCRIPTION

The program 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.
 

OPTIONS

    Operations

-c, --catchup
  catch up with channels and exit
-l, --list list available enclosures that have not yet been downloaded, and exit
-h, --help display help and exit
-V, --version
  output version information and exit

    Operation filters

-n, --new-only
  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.
-1, --first-only
  restrict operation to the most recent item in each channel only.
-f pattern, --filter=pattern
  restrict operation to items whose enclosures have names matching the regular expression pattern. Note that this will override any regular expression filters given in the configuration file.

    Global options

-r, --resume
  resume aborted downloads
-q, --quiet
  do not print anything except error messages
-v, --verbose
  print detailed progress information
-d, --debug
  print (lots of) connection debug information
-p, --progress-bar
  print a progress bar when downloading enclosures
-C filename, --rcfile=filename
  override the default filename for the configuration file

EXAMPLES

castget
  download all enclosures not already downloaded
castget -v foobar
  download all enclosures not already downloaded from channel foobar and be verbose
castget -l
  list all enclosures not already downloaded
castget -c foobar
  catch up with channel foobar
castget -1 -n -l
  list the first available enclosure in all new channels
castget -c -f "Freddies0[67]" frederator
  catch up with items that match the regular expression Freddies0[67] in the channel frederator
