Source code for scripts.touch

This bot goes over multiple pages of a wiki, and edits them without changes.

This is for example used to get category links in templates working.

Command-line arguments:

-purge                    Purge the page instead of touching it

Touch mode (default):

-botflag                  Force botflag in case of edits with changes.

Purge mode:

-converttitles            Convert titles to other variants if necessary
-forcelinkupdate          Update the links tables
-forcerecursivelinkupdate Update the links table, and update the links tables
                          for any page that uses this page as a template
-redirects                Automatically resolve redirects
