--days N grab N days. The default and the maximum is 7.

--offset N start N days in the future. The default is to start from today.

--enable-readstr add Hiragana(read strings) for program title.

--no-category-code suppress category code. English translated category names will be added to the listings without this option.

--quiet suppress the progress messages normally written to standard error.

--list-channels write output giving <channel> elements for every channel available , but no programmes.
