I want to generate a list of matches for a search, but not do anything to the page.
I tell you the trick. This is not my own wisdom, I have learnt it from hu:user:Pasztilla.
For example, you have a user:MyBot/try subpage. You copy replace.py to replace2.py, and then modify as itt follows:
1. Look for " def run(self):" line, and write under it:
This will start a new list. Alternatively,
list = wikipedia.Page(wikipedia.getSite(), 'User:MyBot/try').get()
will continue your existing list.
2. Under " if choice == 'y':"
look for page.put_async(new_text, self.editSummary)
and comment it out: #page.put_async(new_text, self.editSummary)
and write just below this line:
list+= u'# [[%s]]\n' %page.title()
listsite = wikipedia.Page(wikipedia.getSite(), 'User:MyBot/try')
This will write the title of the page to your subpage.
3. Under the " if self.acceptall and new_text != original_text:" line
make the same changes as in step 2.
