Reddit Image Scraper is a perl script designed to read in one or more subreddits and download all the images in it that are hosted on the image hosting site. Be aware that this script can chew through bandwidth quickly, especially if given a large list of subreddits. Please be courteous of the bandwidth of both and Let's keep these two free resouces just that: free.

Usage: ./ [min # of photos] or ./ -1 is a shell script to help maintain a collection of directories created from Reddit_Image_Scrpaer. Running with a positive number will delete any directory with less than that number of photos. Running it with a -1 will list all the directorys and the number of photos in them.
