phpComics 0.4

less than 1 minute read

This is a collection of scripts that allow you to download complete archives of web-published comics.


First off, to actually run this script you must tell it where the php binary is. Edit phpcomics.php and modify the first line to #!/path/to/php4 -q. On Debian Sid, this is /usr/bin/php4.

Then, edit the script for the comic you want to download, modifying these parameters:

  • $start_year = start-year
  • $start_month = start-month
  • $start_day = start-day
  • $end_year = end-year
  • $end_month = end-month
  • $end_day = end-day

or you can leave them to their default settings, which will get everything from the start of the archive to the current date.
