Piddlepodder is a podcatching client. It imitates the simplicity of bashpodder with a few added features.
PiddlePodder downloads podcasts from a list of XML feeds and puts them into a download directory by date.
No effort is made to copy the resulting files to an iPod, nor will this application interface with a directory, since it's just a simple podcatcher.
Piddlepodder offers the ability to mark the set of podcasts as current (catch up). This is handy for first-time users who would otherwise be stuck downloading every show (sometimes since the beginning of the podcast) which can lead to hefty download times and large amounts of disk space.
PiddlePodder owes a debt of gratitude to PerlPodder, the code of which drives the XML parsing in PiddlePodder. Thanks to Sam Versluys et. al for creating PerlPodder.
