It downloads # the files, checks their SHA1 or MD5 verification and verifies that the # files are working. # # Command line application and Python library that checks or downloads # metalink files. Requires Python 2.5 or newer. # # Instructions: # 1. You need to have Python installed. # 2. To check PGP signatures you need to install gpg (http://www.gnupg.org) or gpg4win (http://www.gpg4win.org/) # 3. Run on the command line using: python metalink.py # # Usage: metalinkc.py [-c|-d|-j|--convert|--rconvert] [options] arg1 arg2 ... # # Options: # --version show program's version number and exit # -h, --help show this help message and exit # -d, --download Actually download the file(s) in the metalink # -c, --check Check the metalink file URLs # -t TIMEOUT, --timeout=TIMEOUT # Set timeout in seconds to wait for response # (default=10) # -o OS, --os=OS Operating System preference # -s, --no-segmented Do not use the segmented download method # -l LANG, --lang=LANG Language preference (ISO-639/3166) # --country=LOC Two letter country preference (ISO 3166-1 alpha-2) # -k DIR, --pgp-keys=DIR # Directory with the PGP keys that you trust (default: # working directory) # -p FILE, --pgp-store=FILE # File with the PGP keys that you trust (default: # ~/.gnupg/pubring.gpg) # -g GPG, --gpg-binary=GPG # (optional) Location of gpg binary path if not in the # default search path # -j, --convert-jigdo Convert Jigdo format file to Metalink # --port=PORT Streaming server port to use (default: No streaming # server) # --html=HTML Extract links from HTML webpage # --convert Conversion from 3 to 4 (IETF RFC) # --rconvert Reverses conversion from 4 (IETF RFC) to 3 # --output=OUTFILE Output conversion result to this file instead of # screen # -r, --rss RSS/Atom Feed Mode, implies -d # -w WRITEDIR Directory to write output files to (default: current # directory) # # Library Instructions: # -
