EXAMPLE CRON JOB

       Once  podget  is running acceptably, its most useful if you run it from a cron job so that
       the new songs are available to play or load onto a portable player and you  dont  have  to
       wait for them to download.

       To edit your crontab, do:

         $ crontab -e

       Then insert one line (i for insert mode), like the following:

         15 04 * * * /usr/bin/podget -s

       This will run podget at 4:15 AM every day.

AUTOMATIC CLEANUP

       You   can   enabled   automatic   cleanup  with  every  run  by  configuring  it  in  your
       $HOME/.podget/podgetrc file. Simply set the following options:

         # Autocleanup.
         # 0 == disabled
         # 1 == delete any old content
         cleanup=1

         # Number of days to keep files.   Cleanup will remove anything
         # older than this.
         cleanup_days=7

       However, some people prefer to run cleanup as a seperate cron session. To do that, set the
       options in .podgetrc to:

         # Autocleanup.
         # 0 == disabled
         # 1 == delete any old content
         cleanup=0

         # Number of days to keep files.   Cleanup will remove anything
         # older than this.
         cleanup_days=7

       And add a cron job to run cleanup, like one of these examples:

         # Once a week on Sunday at 04:15AM
         15 04 * * Sun /usr/bin/podget -C

SESSION CONTROL

       Podget checks for already running sessions when it starts and exits if any are found.
              Each  session  requires  its  own core configuration file, so for multiple sessions
              simply provide a unique -c <configfile> option for each.

EXAMPLE SERVER LIST

       By default, Podget uses $HOME/.podget/serverlist for the default list of servers

       to contact.
              However you can configure the name with  the  config_serverlist  variable  in  your
              $HOME/.podget/podgetrc file.

       The default format is: <url> <category> <name>

       Note: Category must be one word.

       Example:

         # Default Server List for podget
         # FORMAT:    <url> <category> <name>
         # NOTE: Category must be one word

       HANDLING UTF-16 FEEDS

       Some servers provide their feeds in UTF-16 format rather than the more common UTF-8.

       To automatically convert these files, create a secondary serverlist at:

               $HOME/.podget/serverlist.utf16

       Remember  to  change  the  name  of  the  serverlist  to  match  what  you  set it to with
       config_serverlist if you changed it.
