       tv_validate_grabber - Validate that an xmltv grabber works correctly


       tv_validate_grabber --help

       tv_validate_grabber [--config-file <configfile>] [--keep-files] <cmd>


       tv_validate_grabber runs a grabber through a series of test to determine if it follows the
       recommendations described at <>

       tv_validate_grabber does not assume that the grabber is written in perl.  The command does
       not have to be a single executable, it can also be a complete command-line:

       tv_validate_grabber "perl -I lib grab/new/tv_grab_new"


       --config-file <configfile> Use the specified file as configuration file for the grabber.
       If the file does not exist, the grabber is run with --configure to create it. Default is
       to always run the grabber with --configure first and store the configuration in a
       temporary file.

       --keep-files Do not delete the output-files generated during the validation.
