The --brief (-b) flag causes ipraytime to display a short output message containing prayer times. However, the output, as brief as it is, is not optimal for scripts that utilize the tool (three lines with the unnecessary date before the actual times).
Ideally, only the times should be displayed on nothing else. the date is known (it's the current date or the date specified in ipraytime's arguments) therefore should not be included. The column headers are also unnecessary for brief output.
I realize that there might be scripts that already depend on the brief format ipraytime currently employs. That's why I ask you to provide a new option that makes ipraytime produce a truly brief output suitable for script consumption.
