Monster bot

I'm writing a bot that will automatically update the monster templates of any page. This bot has two components:

  • A C program. This program is a modification of the one used by bots of the irc channel ##crawl. Right now, I'm working on this part.
  • A Perl script based on MediaWiki-API. It will scan a range of pages and replace any ocurrence of '{monster|name=xxxx|... }' with the output of the C program. There are a few pages that should be skipped like pan lord, player ghost, hell beast, small/large abomination, and maybe a few others. Those pages should use a different template (it could be called monster-no-bot) which is just a copy of the monster template. --CommanderC 15:25, 24 December 2012 (CET)
Oh, awesome, thanks! I'll try to get to fixing up the templates in the near future. -Ion frigate 20:21, 24 December 2012 (CET)

The following pages can't be updated by the bot: Lightning spire, Mimic, Player ghost, Pandemonium lord, Shapeshifter, Glowing shapeshifter, Serpent of Hell. Perhaps, there are more pages that should be excluded by the bot. --CommanderC 22:15, 2 May 2013 (CEST)

Awesome job with all the automated stuff! --Flun 22:39, 2 May 2013 (CEST)
