I use plpodder, a perl client I cloned from castgrab.  I added a bunch
of features but have done no documentation for it.  I suffer the disease
most programmers suffer from - Documentation! that always comes last, if
at all:).  So far, plpodder can import OPML files and export them, paste
in a subscription from the command line, automatically create
subdirectories for each podcast subscription.  If you know perl, you can
figure out pretty easily how things work.  I may have to take a look at
bashpodder and see what all it can do.  but my pride has the best of me
and I would eventually like to contribute something to the software
community even if it is a clone of something that already exist.
There's always room for better mouse traps:).

I think I should take what I have, give it a version number and post it
up there for people to take what I have so far.  Go to
ftp.holmesgrown.com/linux in the next day or so and I'll have something
up there.
