If the host of the podcasts requires username and password credentials, add them to ~/.netrc

I would like to move my podcasts from one computer to another. Is it as simple as recursively copying the directory? I was looking through the script and as far as I can tell, it knows if it has downloaded a particular file based on grepping the .log files, so as long as I keep all those log files I should be OK? In some podcasts I have gone through and fixed/organized the tags, and I would hate to have those re-downloaded and overwrite what I have.

Also, is there any reason I can't periodically concatenate all my log files together into one big one so that I can get rid of the dozens and dozens of daily log files?

Oh, and by the way, this is a great program. Thank you very much. I find it very convenient.

Nothing needs to be changed. We started tracking sessions because some people had feed lists so long that some updates would cause their cron jobs to trigger off multiple sessions & multiple downloads of the same files.

This appears to be a bug. What version of Podget are you running?

1+ refers to the number 1 or any bigger digit. It could be 1, it could be 5, it could be 100.

Some remarks about podget
Hi,

Thanks for the nice program.

1.

When I run podget I get the message: Session file not found. Creating.

Can you explain to me what this means? Do I have to do / change something?

Maybe the explanation can be added to the man file.

2.

The log files do not get to the logfile folder appointed in the podgetrc file. In stead they go to the .LOG folder in the by me appointed Podcasts folder. Any idea on how I can solve this, what causes it?

3.

In the help:

# Most Recent

# 0 == download all new items.

# 1+ == download only the <count> most re

What does the + after the 1 mean. I found it confusing. I thougt I had to enter

most_recent=5+

for example. But it has to be most_recent=5

Thanks.
