If the grabber fails to download data from webstep, it will print an errormessage to STDERR and then exit with a status code of 1 to indicate that the data is missing.
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.
