I missed somthing:

1.1 (between 1 and 2 :-)
If spool directory not exist, create it.

Let's revisit the 3rd item:

Think of we change the GLOBAL spool, as 3rd item, we will have new .castget, and will re-fetch the items fetched before. This is not what we need.

So, keeping .castget in our home directory is the better solution than this. We're back :-)

Hi all,

I changed castget's behavior in some ways, based on podcast from my eyes. Thus:

o Put all related things together, but struct clearly:

1. All downloaded podcast encloures are put into the GLOBAL spool directory.
2. If there is no sub directory for the channel, use its' identifier as the sub directory.
3. Put the ~/.castget directory into the GLOBAL spool directory. The ~/.castget directory is recording which encloure has been downloaded for each channel.
4. All play list for downloaded podcast encloures are put into the GLOBE spool directory.

o Time is important for podcasts:

5. The play list is split day by day; play list for each channel is not be allowed.
6. If the download speed low than 1 K/B and last 10 seconds, give up.

I put all above changes in one patch, I know this is not so good, just forgive me.

Enjoy listen to podcast *-)
