NAME

       XMLTV::Configure - Configuration file handling for XMLTV grabbers

DESCRIPTION

       Utility library that helps grabbers read from configuration files and implement a
       configuration method that can be run from the command-line.

EXPORTED FUNCTIONS

       All these functions are exported on demand.

       LoadConfig
           Takes the name of the configuration file to load as a parameter.

           Returns a hashref with configuration fieldnames as keys. Note that the values of the
           hash are references to an array of values.

           Example:
             {
               username => [ 'mattias' ],
               password => [ 'xxx' ],
               channel => [ 'svt1.svt.se', 'kanal5.se' ],
               no_channel => ['svt2.svt.se' ],
             }

           Note that unselected options from a selectmany are collected in an entry named after
           the key with a prefix of 'no_'. See the channel and no_channel entry in the example.
           They are the result of a selectmany with id=channel.

           The configuration file must be in the format described in the file
           "ConfigurationFiles.txt". If the file does not exist or if the format is wrong,
           LoadConfig returns undef.

       SaveConfig
           Write a configuration hash in the format returned by LoadConfig to a file that can be
           loaded with LoadConfig. Takes two parameters, a reference to a configuration hash and
           a filename.

           Note that a grabber should normally never have to call SaveConfig. This is done by the
           Configure-method.

       Configure
           Generates a configuration file for the grabber.

           Takes three parameters: stagesub, listsub and the name of the configuration file.

           stagesub shall be a coderef that takes a stage-name or undef and a configuration
           hashref as a parameter and returns an xml-string that describes the configuration
           necessary for that stage.  The xml-string shall follow the xmltv-configuration.dtd.

           listsub shall be a coderef that takes a configuration hash as returned by LoadConfig
           as the first parameter and an option hash as returned by ParseOptions as the second
           parameter and returns an xml-string containing a list of all the channels that the
           grabber can deliver data for using the supplied configuration. Note that the listsub
           shall not use any channel-configuration from the hashref.
