Description luzi82 2005-05-12 17:22:40 UTC
When a regular expression is inputed, a set of pages which match will be
outputed.  That would be useful when using with subpage (although subpage is no
longer used)
Comment 1 Domas Mituzas 2005-05-12 17:24:15 UTC
you can download title lists at http://download.wikimedia.org/

you can use Special:Allpages for page prefixes

and you may provide an index methodology for regexp queries.

sorry, I see nothing useful but database dumps

> you can use Special:Allpages for page prefixes
sorry, the Special:Allpages seems not doing regexp filtering, but ignore other
pages which are "less than" it.

> and you may provide an index methodology for regexp queries.
sorry, what is "index methodology"?

[[Special:Prefixindex]] does pretty much what you want, i guess
