Source code for scripts.image

This script can be used to change one image to another or remove an image.


    python image image_name [new_image_name]

If only one command-line parameter is provided then that image will be removed;
if two are provided, then the first image will be replaced by the second one on
all pages.

Command line options:

-summary:  Provide a custom edit summary. If the summary includes spaces,
           surround it with single quotes, such as:
           -summary:'My edit summary'
-always    Don't prompt to make changes, just do them.
-loose     Do loose replacements. This will replace all occurrences of the name
           of the image (and not just explicit image syntax). This should work
           to catch all instances of the image, including where it is used as a
           template parameter or in image galleries. However, it can also make
           more mistakes. This only works with image replacement, not image


The image "FlagrantCopyvio.jpg" is about to be deleted, so let's first remove
it from everything that displays it:

    python image FlagrantCopyvio.jpg

The image "Flag.svg" has been uploaded, making the old "Flag.jpg" obsolete:

    python image Flag.jpg Flag.svg
