efa-m - Unofficial interface to the efa.vrr.de departure monitor
efa-m [-Lr] [-d dd.mm.yyyy] [-t hh:mm] [-l lines] [-p platforms] [-u url] city [type:]name
efa-m lists upcoming tram, bus and train departures at the location name in city.
By default, name refers to a stop, this can be changed by specifying type. Supported types are address and poi (point of interest).
Show departures for date instead of today. May also be specified as dd.mm.
Do not show departures. Instead, list all lines serving the specified place. Note that this information may be incomplete -- only lines which are in service either at the time of the efa-m call or at the time specifed using --date and --time are guaranteed to be included.
Only show departures of lines (comma-separatad list, option may be repeated)
Only show departures at platforms (comma-separated list,
option may be repeated).
Note that the
Gleis prefix must be omitted.
Use relative departure times.
Show departures starting at time instead of now.
URL to the EFA entry point, defaults to http://efa.vrr.de/vrr/XSLT_DM_REQUEST. Depending on your location, some urls may contain more specific data than others. See Travel::Status::DE::EFA(3pm) for alternatives.
Show version information.
Normally zero. 1 means efa-m was called with invalid options, 2 indicates a request error from Travel::Status::DE::EFA(3pm).
efa-m uses the VRR EFA service by default, which seems to contain the greatest available set of information. However, some cities (e.g. Berlin or parts of Hamburg) are incomplete. efa-m is not yet able to choose the appropriate EFA URL for these by itself, it needs to be done manually with the -u, --efa-url option.
