no way for user to dump all categories
Closed, DeclinedPublic


In an effort to print out all my Special:Categories without limits,
I inch up 444, 555 ...
$ GET http://localhost/mediawiki/index.php?title=Special:Categories\&limit=777
500 Server closed connection without sending any data back

Well gosh, at least say "asking for too many", don't just slam the door.

OK, forced to do
$ i=0; while test $i -le 2000
do w3m -dump http://localhost/mediawiki/index.php/Special:Categories?limit=500\&offset=$i
: $((i+=500)); done|perl -nwe 'print if /^\s*\d+\./'
