SYNOPSIS

ydecode [-d, --debug] [-f, --force] [-k, --keep] [-l, --list] [-o, --output=dir] [-p, --paths] [-q, --quiet] [-r, --recursive] [-s, --scan] [-t, --test] [--strict] [--verify] [--help] [--version] [FILE] ...

DESCRIPTION

ydecode decodes the files specified on the command line according to the yEnc Usenet encoding format. If no regular files are specified, ydecode will scan any directories specified on the command line and/or the current directory for yEnc encoded files, and decode them.

OPTIONS

-d, --debug Write messages useful for debugging to stderr while program is operating.

-f, --force If the output file already exists, overwrite the existing file without prompting.

-k, --keep If an error occurs during the decoding process, do not remove the erroneous output file.

-l, --list Only list information about encoded files specified on the command line or found during scanning.

-o, --output=dir Create output in dir instead of the current directory.

-p, --paths Obey relative pathnames to files in the encoded data. For example, if an encoded file specifies the output file name as files/new/bigfile.mp3, ydecode will by default ignore the paths and save the file as bigfile.mp3. If the -p option is specified, the output file will be saved as files/new/bigfile.mp3.

-q, --quiet Try to avoid writing output while running. The only output that will occur is error messages.

-r, --recursive When scanning for encoded files, scan directories recursively.

-t, --test Operate as usual, decoding and testing the integrity of all input files (or files found during scanning), but do not actually create output files.

--strict If this option is requested, more strict checks against the yEnc specification will be performed while testing or decoding files. The decoded data output will be unaffected, but warning messages will be output when non-compliant data is found. This option is highly recommended for individuals who want to implement yEnc encoding into their own applications, to test the validity of their compressed data.

--verify Synonym for ‘--test --strict’.

--help Display program help and exit.

--version Output version number and exit.
