==================
DESCRIPTION
==================

Synclosure is a rss enclosure aggregator to flexibly download the files. 
It supports filter keywords, custom actions and a caching mechanism.

==================
USAGE
==================

Editing the "sources.ini" file.

    One RSS URL fits on one line. Deleting it will create a default file. 
    Comments begin with a '#' character and blank lines are allowed.

Including only certain types of files. 

    For example, only want mp3 files? Include them: 
    synclosure -imp3

Exclude certain types of files. 

    For example, don't want mov files? Exclude them: 
    synclosure -emov

Using custom actions. 

    You want torrent files to be automatically  handled over to your 
    BitTorrent Client?
    synclosure -a torrent "c:\program files\abc\abc.exe"

Specifying a destination folder.

    Synclosure will create directories based on the names of the feeds it
    parses and will place them in the same directory as the script. If you
    would like to place them somewhere else, specify the directory.
    synclosure -d COOKIES_PODCAST

Scheduled downloads.

    Create a link to synclosure.exe (or synclosure.py if using source). 
    Include it in your cronjob/scheduler or manually start it when your
    computer is idle.
