podcast or pcast?

Revised: 2008-01-23 richard

Originally, the command-line tool was called "pcast", but was changed to "podcast", but you still can find remains of the previous name:

% ls -l /usr/bin/podcast /usr/bin/pcast
lrwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel     16 Oct 26 19:53 /usr/bin/pcast -> /usr/bin/podcast
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  59148 Oct  6 00:55 /usr/bin/podcast

"podcast" is the official name used by Apple, but some scripts & tools still use "pcast", so that is why there is a symlink from the previous name "pcast".
