I hacked a little on some old perl-code I had laying around which I once wrote for making fake apache-logs from a full xml-history dump (for analyzing with analog)..
It ain't pretty, but works at least for me... I have only tried it on the full "pages-meta-history" files, but it should work on any similar XML-dump.. it only searches the last revision of a page.
here it is: http://toolserver.no/~stigmj/tools/src/xml-search.pl.txt

I want to list all pages in our wiki that use tables. This seems like it should be simple, but I'm not sure how to do it. Any ideas?

I know that "{|" (the beginning of a table) works as a search term, as I tried it with replace.py. However, I don't want to replace anything, and I don't want to sit there pressing "n" for each result.

Ideally I could capture just the names of the pages, without extended details (such as a proposed diff given by replace.py).

Any help much appreciated.
