I started like this in code
#!/bin/shcd ~/Documents/pictures/wget [url="http://thiswebsite.com/pictures/pic1.jpg"]http://thiswebsite.com/pictures/pic1.jpg[/url]wget [url="http://thiswebsite.com/pictures/pic2.jpg"]http://thiswebsite.com/pictures/pic2.jpg[/url]wget [url="http://thiswebsite.com/pictures/pic3.jpg"]http://thiswebsite.com/pictures/pic3.jpg[/url]etc......wget [url="http://thiswebsite.com/pictures/pic17.jpg"]http://thiswebsite.com/pictures/pic17.jpg[/url]I once upon a time wrote a script that actually did exactly what I wanted to do namely not just download the 17 pictures that change every so often but append the name to reflect the date and time downloaded as well as preserve the original filename part. since I dun remember the syntax I'll have to write mock code and hope you guys can help me out.
echo=offcd ~/Documents/pictures/For x$=(pic1,pic2,pic3,pic4,........,pic17)do wget [url="http://thiswebsite.com/pictures/`x$`.jpg;"]http://thiswebsite.com/pictures/`x$`.jpg;[/url] call rename;doneRenameren `x$`.jpg x$`date (mm,dd,yy,hh,min,(am/pm)).jpgreturnend
I googled on the web about appending filenames but everyone I read just showed examples of the date, also I'mma not sure if you can do in darwin the for do done loop with a call to a subroutine embedded like this.
so honestly I am throughly confused. and need some help.
renaming the files manually would take forever and would be a pain.
this would be the best solution if someone can help translate my mock code into unix commandline
