You can edit this file in a text-editor to set the defaults for the program. You can also over-ride the defaults by using command-line arguments which you can read by typing :

/path/to/ –help

To add a feed using the commandline simply type :

/path/to/ –addnew=,”The name of the feed”

To fetch any updated feeds in your list just run :


To copy all the feeds you’ve downloaded recently to your MP3 player you can run :

/path/to/ –copynew

Every subsequent run with “–copynew” will copy all of the podcasts that you’ve downloaded since the last time you ran –copynew.
