Scripts[edit]

I used the following scripts for this job.

#!/bin/bash
# download.sh
lynx --source https://www.lib.utexas.edu/maps/ams/india/ |grep "^<dt><a href"|grep "/maps/ams/india/"|while read line ; do

        link="`echo \"$line\"|cut -d '"' -f 2`"
        name="`echo \"$line\"|cut -d '>' -f 3|cut -d '<' -f 1`"
        file="`echo \"$link\"|rev|cut -d '/' -f 1|rev`" 
        
        wget "$link" -O "files/$file"

        echo "$link" > "files/$file.link"
        echo "$name" > "files/$file.name"

done

After downloading, I do some sed magic to cleanup and format the filenames (in *.name). Than I upload with this script:

#!/bin/bash
# upload.sh
ls -1 files/*.jpg | while read file ; do
        if ! cat upload.log | grep "^${file}$" &> /dev/null ; then
        
python pywikipedia/upload.py -keep -filename:`echo "Map India and Pakistan 1:250,000 Tile \`cat ${file}.name\`.jpg" | sed 's/ /_/g'` -noverify "${file}" "{{Information
|Description={{en|1=`cat ${file}.name`. Tile of the Map India and Pakistan 1:250,000. Series U502, U.S. Army Map Service, 1955}}

                                echo "Sleeping 10s ..."
                                sleep 10
        fi
