Thank you very much for this. As someone new to Linux I learned a lot
from trying to use it, and how it worked.
The problem I had was that line wrapping in the email caused the
commands to be misinterpreted when I tried to cut and paste them. I
managed to split up the command by splitting the pipes before sort into
redirections to and from files.
I got it to work with get_iplayer v2.96. As I had a --tvmode option in
my preferences I had to use --tvmode=flashnormal instead of the
--modes=flashnormal suggested by get_iplayer.
I initially tried with v2.99. I got 18 results similar to
ERROR: Could not extract a valid PID from
Curiously when I tried to run get_iplayer v2.95 in my present set-up I got
/usr/bin/env: ‘perl\r’: No such file or directory
