in thread Is there a module for object-oriented substring handling/substitution?
I seemed to have caused some confusion with my previous post (sorry about that):
When I wrote about playing nice with page edits by humans, I did not mean actual interactivity while the script is running.
The script performs a self-contained, non-interactive operation: Pull the page source into a string, update specific values, submit the updated page source back to the server, exit.
The human editing happens in between multiple such runs of the script, on the wiki itself.
