       imdb-get — Looks up IMDB data for a film.


       imdb-get  [options]  [--imdb-id id]  [-l id]  [--search search string]  [-s search string]
       [--filename filename]  [-f filename]  [-h ]  [--help]


       This manual page documents briefly the imdb-get command.

       imdb-get has three modes. It can be called with imdb ID and a set of details to print,  in
       which  case it will retrieve those details either from the cache or IMDB. Secondly, it can
       be called with a filename in which case it will look the file up in the  cache  (resolving
       symlinks  as  appropriate  and checking for multiple disks from the same film) and if that
       fails it will use the filename to search IMDB.  Alternatively it may be used with  just  a
       search string, which will always search IMDB.


       These  programs  follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with
       two dashes (`-').  A summary of options is included below.

       -h           --help

       -f           --filename
                 Specify filename. Will be used to form search queries if no ID or search  string
                 is specified.

       -i           --id

                 Removes  cache files with duplicate filename entries.  (Removes all but the most
                 recently modified cache file)

                 Refresh all the details in the cache from IMDB (may be slow).


       Config options are read from /etc/imdbgetrc or $HOME/.imdbgetrc
