Lol!. Its only a perl script?
You might as well be speaking Chinese AFAIAC   Sad
With PCLOS I can happily stream iPlayer, but it would be handy to ba able to d/l. Is there any easy way for a Dummy to do that?

To get your download, download the perl script, make it executable and enter a command line (terminal window):-
jeremy@HECTOR:~$./get_iplayer 3>&2 grep 'Doctor Who'

MickKi.
Many thanks. If you're ever in the Bath area I might buy you that pint!

Thanks to you also. As an old Dummy I am normally totally desktop (sorry- GUI in linux-speak)  reliant!
Next time I get a spare couple of days I'll see if I can get your solution to work. I chose PCLOS because its not yet required me to use CL.
But one advantage of being an oldie is plenty of spare time, and I enjoy a challenge. And Linux is fun  Smiley
