NAME

get-airport_codes - fetch ICAO airport code from wikipedia

SYNOPSIS

    $ ./scripts/get-airport_codes >share/icao.data

DESCRIPTION

A comprehensive list of ICAO airport codes is available on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_airports_by_ICAO_code:_$letter. get-airport_codes is a small script that will fetch and parse these urls (one for each of the 26 letters), to extract this list of airport codes. It will then dump them as "code|name|location" lines, to be inserted directly in Geo::ICAO's DATA section.
