[[HelloInCapitals]] to [[Hello In Capitals]]

Hello community,

I got it all done except for one thing,


[[HelloInCapitals]] or [[PharmaceuticalSocietyOfGreatBritainVBoots1952]]

So now I want to split those in to


[[Hello In Capitals]]

or

[[Pharmaceutical Society Of Great Britain V Boots 1952]]

I am not so good at all this and get stuck with

Code:
sed -e 's/[A-Z]/ &/g' -e 's/[0-9].../ &/g' -e 's/^ //g' infile

But it changes EVERYTHING, and I only want to change Mediawiki links which
are in between [[ ]]

Code:
sed 's/[^A-Z]*/& /g'

something to start with:
Code:
echo '[[HelloInCapitals]] or [[PharmaceuticalSocietyOfGreatBritainVBoots1952]]' | nawk -F'(\\[\\[)|(\\]\\])' '{for(i=2;i<=NF;i+=2) {gsub("[A-Z]", " &", $i);$i="[["substr($i,2)"]]"};print}' OFS=

Just a little improvement to avoid iuseless spaces before and after [[ ]]
Code:
echo '[[HelloInCapitals]] or [[PharmaceuticalSocietyOfGreatBritainVBoots1952]]' | 
nawk -F'(\\[\\[)|(\\]\\])' '{for(i=2;i<=NF;i+=2) {gsub("[A-Z]", " &", $i);$i="[["substr($i,2)"]]"};print}' OFS=""

echo '[[HelloInCapitals]] or [[PharmaceuticalSocietyOfGreatBritainVBoots1952]]' | 
sed 's/[A-Z]/ &/g; s/\[ /\[/g'

yep, caught that one as well.
also taking care of 'numbers':
Code:
echo '[[HelloInCapitals]] OrAnd [[PharmaceuticalSocietyOfGreatBritainVBoots1952]]' | nawk -F'(\\[\\[)|(\\]\\])' '{for(i=2;i<=NF;i+=2) {gsub("[A-Z]|[0-9][0-9]*", " &", $i);$i="[["substr($i,2)"]]"};print}' OFS=
