I have modified the get.py modul of the pywikibot. The purpose is to display
the date of creation of the article. I guessed from wikipedia.py that I need
either page.getVersionHistory(), which is a list, or
page.getVersionHistoryTable(), which gives the history as a wikitable.
Now it seems to work, but sometimes it gives back a shorter page history,
than the real one, and, unfortunately, sometimes both methods give an empty
page history, and thus en error in the program flow.
Here are some concerned pages:
[[hu:Ehrenfeld Samu]] (http://hu.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ehrenfeld_Saul
) seems to have a completely
empty page history, which is not true and results in an error.
(Theoretically, no article could exist with an empty history.)
[[hu:Mark VII]] (http://hu.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_VII
) displays only one
line, just as it had a single-edit history.
Where is the mistake?
I attach proba.py which is the modified version of get.py. I hope you will
not take my head for that, it's very small. :-) The Hungarian comments are
not relevant, the essence is written here. An article can be given as a
command line parameter.
