Sorry if this is a dump question (I'm not a developer).  To run the command on the rdfslice program in mentions (" java -jar rdfslice.jar -source <fileList>|<path> -patterns <graphPatterns> -out <fileDest> -order <order> -debug <debugGraphSize>), can this be done with windows command prompt? or do I need some special developer version of java/console?

Thanks for the tool.

I am interested in a subset of wikidata and I am trying to find the best way to get it without getting a larger dataset then necessary.

Is there a way to just get the "bios" that appear on the wikidata pages below the name of the person/organization, as well as the link to the english wikipedia page / or all wikipedia pages?

For example from:"

"Turkish female given name"
and optionally

I know there is SPARQL which previously this list helped me construct a query, but I know some requests seem to timeout when looking at a large amount of data so I am not sure this would work.

The dumps I know are the full dataset, but I am not sure if there's any other subset dumps available or better way of grabbing this data

Thanks in advance,
