Parse::MediaWikiDump::page - Object representing a specific revision of a MediaWiki page


This object is returned from the "next" method of Parse::MediaWikiDump::Pages and Parse::MediaWikiDump::Revisions. You most likely will not be creating instances of this particular object yourself instead you use this object to access the information about a page in a MediaWiki instance.


  $pages = Parse::MediaWikiDump::Pages->new('pages-articles.xml');
  #get all the records from the dump files, one record at a time
  while(defined($page = $pages->next)) {
    print "title '", $page->title, "' id ", $page->id, "\n";


This software is being RETIRED - MediaWiki::DumpFile is the official successor to Parse::MediaWikiDump and includes a compatibility library called MediaWiki::DumpFile::Compat that is 100% API compatible and is a near perfect standin for this module. It is faster in all instances where it counts and is actively maintained. Any undocumented deviation of MediaWiki::DumpFile::Compat from Parse::MediaWikiDump is considered a bug and will be fixed.
