       imdb-get — Looks up IMDB data for a film.


       imdb-get  [options]   [--imdb-id id]  [-l id]  [--search search string]
       [-s  search  string]   [--filename  filename]   [-f  filename]   [-h  ]


       This manual page documents briefly the imdb-get command.

       imdb-get  has  three  modes. It can be called with imdb ID and a set of
       details to print, in which case it will retrieve those  details  either
       from  the  cache or IMDB. Secondly, it can be called with a filename in
       which case it will look the file up in the cache (resolving symlinks as
       appropriate  and checking for multiple disks from the same film) and if
       that fails it will use the filename to search IMDB.   Alternatively  it
       may be used with just a search string, which will always search IMDB.


       These  programs  follow  the  usual  GNU command line syntax, with long
       options starting with two  dashes  (‘-’).   A  summary  of  options  is
       included below.
