    Smile Script to download the latest issues (plus special editions) of FullCircleMagazine

    I just made a small script to download the latest version of the FullCircleMagazine issues (including the special editions).
    What you need is to create a folder structure like this (the folder names can vary) and keep each different kind of issue on its own folder:

    Code:
    .
    ./Special-Editions
    ./Special-Editions/Scribus
    ./Special-Editions/Programming-Series
    ./Special-Editions/Programming-Series/Python
    ./Special-Editions/Virtualization-Series
    Put the script in "." folder and under each subfolder download manually at least the first issue of the normal or special issues your are interested on (just the ones your are really interested).

    Then run the script and it will iterate until reaching the latest uploaded issues.

    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    
    function download_issue {
            mydir="$1"
    
            pushd "$mydir" > /dev/null
            Prefix=$(ls issue* | cut -d"_" -f 1 | sed 's/issue//g' | sed 's/[0-9]*//g' | tail -1)
            Latest=$( ls issue$Prefix* | cut -d"_" -f 1 | sed 's/issue'$Prefix'//g' | sort -n | tail -1)
            echo "Latest local issue found: "$Latest""
            let "Latest += 1"
            if [ "$Prefix" == "" ]; then
                    FileToDownload=issue"$Latest"_en.pdf
            else
                    FileToDownload=issue"$Prefix"$(printf "%02d" $Latest)_en.pdf
            fi
            echo "Will try to download "$FileToDownload""
            wget -U Mozilla "http://dl.fullcirclemagazine.org/""$FileToDownload" 2> /dev/null
            exit_status=$?
            popd > /dev/null
    
            return $exit_status
    }
    
    while IFS= read -r dir; do
            filesexist=$(ls -l "$dir" | grep -v ^d | grep -v "^total [[:digit:]]" | wc -l)
            if [ $filesexist -gt 0 ]; then
                    echo ""
                    echo "Trying to fetch latest issues in ""$dir"
                    exit_status=0
                    while [ $exit_status -eq 0 ]; do
                            download_issue "$dir"
                            exit_status=$?
                            if [ $exit_status -eq 0 ]; then
                                    echo "Issue "$FileToDownload" downloaded successfully"
                            else
                                    echo "Issue "$FileToDownload" does not yet exist. Please check again later."
                            fi
                    done
                    echo ""
            fi
    done < <(find . -type d)
