NAME

db-ris - Interface to the DeutscheBahn online departure monitor

SYNOPSIS

db-ris [-a] [-d date] [-L] [-m motlist] [-t time] [-v via] station

VERSION

version 1.02

DESCRIPTION

db-ris is an interface to the DeutscheBahn departure monitor available at http://reiseauskunft.bahn.de/bin/bhftafel.exe/dn.

It requests all departures at station (optionally filtered by date, time, route and means of transport) and lists them on stdout, similar to the big departure screens installed at most main stations.

OPTIONS

-a, --arrivals

Show arrivals instead of departures, including trains ending at the specified station. Note that this causes the output to display the start instead of the end station and -f to list all stops between start end station, not station and end.

-d, --date dd.mm.yyyy

Date to list departures for. Default: today.

-f, --full-route

Display complete routes (including arrival times) of all trains.

-l, --lang d|e|i|n

Set language used for additional information. Supports deutsch (default), english, italian and dutch (n).

-L, --ignore-late

Do not display delayed trains.

-m, --mot motlist

Comma-separated list of modes of transport to show/hide. Accepts the following argements:

	ice    InterCity Express trains
	ic_ec  InterCity / EuroCity trains
	d      InterRegio and similar
	nv     "Nahverkehr", RegionalExpress and such
	s      S-Bahn
	bus
	ferry
	u      U-Bahn
	tram

You can prefix an argument with "!" to hide it. The default is ice,ic_ec,d,nv,s. Note that -m does not replace the default, so if you only want to see S-Bahn and U-Bahn departures, you'd have to use -m !ice,!ic_ec,!d,!nv,u.

-t, --time hh:mm

Time to list departures for. Default: now.

-v, --via regex

Only display trains whose route (all stations between the current stop and the destination) matches the perl regular expression regex. The match is not case-sensitive. Use '^regex$' to match a full string, but be aware that this may not work as expected.

-V, --version

Show version information.

EXIT STATUS

Zero unless things went wrong.

CONFIGURATION

None.
