dailystrips-update - download updated dailystrips definitions


dailystrips-update [OPTIONS] DAYS


This script is intended to use under the assumption that the development version of
strips.def is the latest and best. Unfortunately, at the time of this writing (August,
2007) upstream development seems to have ceased, so using this script will likely result
in a more out-of-date strips definiton than is included in the distribution.


Due to the above, as of November 2009, dailystrips-update has been neutered to exit
immediately on execution, and it is expected that it will be removed in a future version
of this package.


The dailystrips-update script is provided to automatically retrieve updated strip
definitions from a central server, eliminating the need to manually download and install
new versions of the entire program.

It is recommened that the dailystrips-update script be run before each execution of the
main dailystrips program. The dailystrips-update script has provisions to only check for
updates if the current file has reached a certain age, which maximizes efficiency and
should allow users to run the update script before each execution of dailystrips without
overtaxing the update server.


Operation is straightforward. Simply execute dailystrips-update and the updated
definitions will be saved to ~/.dailystrips-updates.def, which will automatically be
loaded by the main dailystrips program.
