#!/usr/bin/env python

# The following script will automatically download the current week's
# TWIC games.  Be sure to edit the setting of scid_database and
# scid_spelling, near the top of the script.

# This version fixes a few bugs, and will use lftp if you have it
# installed, wget if not.  If neither of those work, it will attempt to
# download the URL directly, using Python's urllib.py module (which
# doesn't do regetting, retrying, etc).

# By John Wiegley

# NOTE: This program comes with absolutely NO WARRANTY.  If anything
# goes wrong, it may delete your database entirely instead of adding
# to it!  I recommend backing up your database, trying it out, and
# then adding a "last week rollback" type of copy command to your
# cronjob, just to make sure.
