[pmwiki-users] How to do the equivalent of hitting "save" on every page on the wiki?

This seems to work:
   foreach($pages as $pn){
     foreach($EditAttrFields as $fn=>$fa){
       if ( is_callable(@$fa['filter']) ) $fa['filter']( $pn, $fn,  
$thispage );
     if($thispage!=$oldpage) WritePage($pn,$thispage);

This could however be an easy way to develop a DOS attack, so it  
should be limited to certain trusted usernames and/or passwords.
