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.
