management of external databases

Many scientific communities share the problem of regularly updating external databases. With every update, also various tasks need to be performed for the update of indices that need to be recreated. This work depends on the tools that are available locally and is not always completely simple.

This package provides the getData Perl script, which in some not so complicated manner performs the invocation to wget to download data and then knows how to perform the indexing. There is only a hash table to be filled with the commands to be executed. Maintainers of scientific packages that are strongly coupled to public datasets are invited to add a runtime dependency to this package and add instructions for getData to follow.
