bulk import of metadata using files and command line
I imported a large number of book to calibre. The meta information like authors, cover, comments were bad.
So i googled a long time and tested a procedure to harmonize my library. I used the commands "fetch-ebook-metadata" to create machine readable input. I downloaded missing covers, too.
At this point I got everything to update Calibre library but needed a collection of scripts to perform the meta data bulk upload. Whoever is interested in the scripts my give me a PN.
Scripts are running on windows with cygwin (you definitely need tools like grep,awk etc.)
get the internal id of an ebook (my sample acts with the series_index)
mask text input (e.g. in comments) to avoid shell confusion
update the metadata author,comments,id,cover
At the moment parameters are missing but the first working sample is ready.

Perhaps if you show us what you have come up with so far, we can help you refine it.
