Anyone know how to use imdb-get from imdb-tools package?


Hi all

I downloaded the new deb:

Code:
voorhees@voorhees:~$ imdb-get -v
IMDB Tools Version 0.8
I can search for a film ok:

Code:
voorhees@voorhees:~$ imdb-get -s Alien
1: Alien  (1979)
2: Alien  (1982) (VG)
Select a Film: 1
Getting details from IMDB
id: tt0078748
But I cant get any plots or anything. From the man page:
Code:
--help -h - Print syntax and options.
        --imdbid -l <id> - Lookup by IMDB number.
        --search -s <string> - Search names.
        --filename -f <file> - Filename.
        --id -i - Print IMDB ID (Default).
        --title -t - Print title.
        --director -D - Print director.
        --writer -w - Print writer.
        --genre -g - Print list of genres.
        --tag -T - Print tag line.
        --plot -p - Print plot.
        --year -y - Print year.
So i try something like : imdb-get -p Alien 1979

But this doesnt work. I even tried with the id: Number error always says:

Code:
voorhees@voorhees:~$ imdb-get -p Alien 1979
Unknown option: Alien
Syntax: imdb-get [options]
Any help would be great

Many Thanks

EDIT:

This works:

voorhees@voorhees:~$ imdb-get -l tt0078748 -p
Getting details from IMDB
plot: A mining ship, investigating a suspected SOS, lands on a distant planet. The crew discovers some strange creatures and investigates.

But there must be away to search from film name without getting id first.

Sorry to waste everyones time the code is :

Code:
voorhees@voorhees:~$ imdb-get -s Alien -p
1: Alien  (1979)
2: Alien  (1982) (VG)
Select a Film: 1
Getting details from IMDB
plot: A mining ship, investigating a suspected SOS, lands on a distant planet. The crew discovers some strange creatures and investigates.
