EpgDownloader is a written in perl, plugin based programme guide converter. With derivered plugins you can for example download tv schedule from website and export it to xmltv or VDR's epg.data format. The idea is to make easy conversion between various programme guides possible. Plugins can have import or export abbilities (or some of it could have it both). EpgDownloader uses common interface to translate one format into another. Import plugins should return its schedule in commom format and export plugins should be able to take this schedule and save it in its own one. Such approach gives simplicity of writing support for new formats. Only thing programmer needs to think is how to convert schedule into EpgDownloader's format (import plugins) or how to convert EpgDownloader's format into some other one (export plugins).
