    I have fixed most of the bugs in the IMDb grabber (imdb.pl). i really love AviManager, and was tired of having to enter most of the fields manually. So this weekend i have been hacking the grabber, as best as i can.

    There is left to rewrite the actors grabbing, which I can't figure out. IMDb have changed their layout so the actors are no longer in one long line, as before. I am no perl hacker, so i leave that task up to someone else. What i have done is to grab the actors which is listed in "meta name description" header, which seem to list 4 actors. But for somereason the grabber only grab the last 3.
    So there it is. But I have done my best.

    I have uploaded the file here: http://www.solbu.net/scripts/aviman/
    I have digitally signed the file with my GnuPG/PGP key, sha1sum and sha512sum so those who care can verify that I created it.

    I forgot one thing, the poster/image grabbing is also not fixed, as I didn't figure that out.
