TV_GRAB_COMBINER(1)   User Contributed Perl Documentation  TV_GRAB_COMBINER(1)

NAME
       tv_grab_combiner	- Grab listings	by combining data from several
       grabbers.

SYNOPSIS
       tv_grab_combiner	--help

       tv_grab_combiner	--configure [--config-file FILE]

       tv_grab_combiner	[--config-file FILE]
			[--days	N] [--offset N]
			[--output FILE]	[--quiet]

DESCRIPTION
       Output TV and listings in XMLTV format by combining data	from several
       other grabbers.

       First you must run tv_grab_combiner --configure to choose which
       grabbers	you want to grab data with and how these grabbers should be
       configured.

       Then you	can run	tv_grab_combiner with the --days and --offset options
       to grab data. Omitting these options will use the default values	for
       these parameters	for each grabber. Since	these defaults differs between
       grabbers, you might end up with data for	different periods of time for
       different channels.

OPTIONS
       --configure Prompt for which grabbers to	use, how these grabbers	shall
       be configured and write the configuration file.

       --config-file FILE Set the name of the configuration file, the default
       is ~/.xmltv/tv_grab_combiner.conf.  This	is the file written by
       --configure and read when grabbing.

       --output	FILE When grabbing, write output to FILE rather	than standard
       output.

       --days N	When grabbing, grab N days rather than 5.

       --offset	N Start	grabbing at today + N days.  N may be negative.

       --quiet Suppress	the progress-bar normally shown	on standard error.

       --version Show the version of the grabber.

       --help Print a help message and exit.

ERROR HANDLING
       If any of the called grabbers exit with an error, tv_grab_combiner will
       exit with a status code of 1 to indicate	that the data is incomplete.
       If any grabber produces output that is not well-formed xml, the output
       from that grabber will be ignored and tv_grab_combiner will exit	with a
       status code of 1.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
       The environment variable	HOME can be set	to change where	configuration
       files are stored. All configuration is stored in	$HOME/.xmltv/.
