  You MUST read through the "License and Site Access" section    
  of IMDb's "Copyright and Conditions of Use" site before 		  
  doing anything with this!									  
                                                                 
  Be sure that you don't break any rules or statments in their   
  licensing.                                                     
                                                                 
  I, Mikael Brevik, will take NO responsibility for your 		  
  actions if you deside to break with any of these rules. 		  
  Don't do anything illegal or use this class for illegal		  
  purposes.                                                      
                                                                 
   
   
  
  
   
                         Installation:
   
  There is only one step, and it only counts if you are to be 
  using mysql-caching:
   - Import the SQL-file in the compressed folder into your 
  database. Do so through tools as phpMyAdmin or others
   
   
                              Usage
   
  
  If you are using MySQL caching you must connect to MySQL and 
  select DB before running any processing methods in the class.
  
  Also if you deside to use UTF-8, run these codes:
  
  // UTF-8 Fix
  header('Content-Type: text/html; charset=utf-8');
 
 	if($imdb->activate_mysql_cache) {
 		mysql_query("SET NAMES utf8");
 	}
  
   
  You also might want to add a notice to the user that non-cached
  movies will take some time to load.


  Example of getting:
   - all info out of one movie (or more):
  
  $imdb = new IMDb_Fetch ('The Boondock Saints');
  $imdb->all_details = true;
  
  print_r($imdb->get_result_array());
  
   
  
  Example of getting:
  
   - rating, name, 4 of the cast and year of production 
  from X movies:
  
  $imdb = new IMDb_Fetch ();
  $imdb->from_title = array ('tt0123456', 'The Boondock Saints');
  $imdb->add_movie('Disturbia');
  $imdb->show_year = true;
  $imdb->show_cast = 4;
  $imdb->show_rating = true;
  
  print_r($imdb->get_result_array());
  
  
  Example of getting:
   - 10 videos from your Vote History with all details
  
  $imdb = new IMDb_Fetch ();
  $imdb->add_movie($imdb->get_votehistory('USERID', 10));
  $imdb->all_details = true
  
  print_r($imdb->get_result_array());
  
  (Vote history must be public!)
  
   
   
  
  The formating of the results is something you must take 
  care of on your own.
