"yarrg" screenscraper for YARRG and PCTB

There is an obsolete screenscraper for Linux, known as "yarrg". It is much slower and less reliable than JARRG. We recommend you use JARRG instead.

Instructions for using obsolete "yarrg"

The current official version of the yarrg screenscraper can browsed here: http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~ijackson/ypp-sc-tools/master/ . See particularly the YARRG README.

To install the client, install the "git" version control system and the other dependencies listed in the "Installation requirements" section of the README and then run:

git-clone http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~ijackson/ypp-sc-tools/master/.git ypp-sc-tools
cd ypp-sc-tools
cd yarrg
this will download the code into the directory ypp-sc-tools, and build the software. (If your Linux is very up to date you may find that it complains that it doesn't know the command git-clone. In that case, use git clone, with a space, instead.)

When new versions of the upload client are released, you can:

cd .../ypp-sc-tools
cd yarrg
to fetch the new version. (Again, you may need git pull instead of git-pull.)

Windows and MacOS

The yarrg scraper would be almost impossible to port to Windows. In any case it is obsolete.
