You can modify a Wiki article programmaticly with Perl and
CMS::MediaWiki. The latest release of this module includes a getPage()
function (which I contributed), and it has always had editPage().
my $lines = $wiki->getPage(title => '/foo');
foreach my $line (@$lines)
...edit stuff here...
$wiki->editPage (title => '/foo', text => join("\n", @$lines) );
On www.novaroma.org I use it to do a random daily image on the main
page. The data file (a table of image locations and captions) is a wiki
page that any of our editors can modify as usual. It is fetched and
parsed, with a random record selected, and from this the template that
provides random images for the main page is parsed. Script is available

"A cactolith is a quasihorizontal chonolith composed of anastomosing
ductoliths whose distal ends curl like a harpolith, thin like a
sphenolith, or bulge discordantly like an akmolith or ethmolith."
