arteget is a simple ruby script that dumps television programs from the "+7" site of Arte.

It uses wget to dump streams to the disk. Be sure to have it in your PATH.

Basic usage:
1) downloading the latest broadcast of a given program:
	$ ./arteget.rb karambolage
2) download the latest one that is at least 5 mn, with the description
    $ ./arteget.rb -D -m 300 karambolage
3) downloading a single video:
	$ ./arteget.rb
4) downloading in german, standard quality:
	$ ./arteget.rb --qual=HQ --lang=de karambolage

Specifying an arbitrary string instead of an URL actualy uses the search
engine, so you have some freedom here.
