DESCRIPTION

Output TV listings in XMLTV format for many channels available in Israel. The data comes from tv-guide.walla.co.il.

First you must run <B>tv_grab_il --configureB> to choose which channels you want to receive.

Then running <B>tv_grab_ilB> with no arguments will get a listings in XML format for the channels you chose for available days including today.

OPTIONS

<B>--configureB> Prompt for which channels to download and write the configuration file.

<B>--config-file FILEB> Set the name of the configuration file, the default is <B>~/.xmltv/tv_grab_il.confB>. This is the file written by <B>--configureB> and read when grabbing.

<B>--output FILEB> When grabbing, write output to FILE rather than standard output.

<B>--days NB> When grabbing, grab N days rather than all available days.

<B>--offset NB> Start grabbing at today + N days. N may be negative.

<B>--slowB> Get programme descriptions as well as title. (Will take a long time with lots of channels selected.)

<B>--quietB> Suppress the progress-bar normally shown on standard error.

<B>--debugB> Provide more information on progress to stderr to help in debugging.

<B>--list-channelsB> Write output giving <channel> elements for every channel available (ignoring the config file), but no programmes.

<B>--capabilitiesB> Show which capabilities the grabber supports. For more information, see <http://wiki.xmltv.org/index.php/XmltvCapabilities>

<B>--versionB> Show the version of the grabber.

<B>--helpB> Print a help message and exit.

ERROR HANDLING

If the grabber fails to download data for some channel on a specific day, it will print an errormessage to STDERR and then continue with the other channels and days. The grabber will exit with a status code of 1 to indicate that the data is incomplete.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

The environment variable HOME can be set to change where configuration files are stored. All configuration is stored in $HOME/.xmltv/. On Windows, it might be necessary to set HOME to a path without spaces in it.

SUPPORTED CHANNELS

For information on supported channels, see http://tv-guide.walla.co.il/
