There is a bot that can run as a daemon. It inserts to the rped_table through the API by page titles from a file. It is designed to be used with Extension:RPED.



Sample configuration settings


Here are some sample configuration settings for wikibot.config.php:

$wikibotSetting['maxurllength']['*']['*']=200; # 200 character max URL when sending data to the API

Command line arguments


The first argument is the bot name; the second argument is the wiki name; the third argument is the filename; the fourth argument is the page title to begin with (e.g. if the script got interrupted earlier); and the fifth argument can be "nodaemon" if you prefer not to daemonize the script. E.g.:

php RPEDIRCBot.php YourBotName YourWikiName enwiki-20100312-all-titles-in-ns0
