NAME

MediaWiki::Bot::Constants - constants for MediaWiki::Bot

VERSION

version 5.006003

SYNOPSIS

    use MediaWiki::Bot;
    use MediaWiki::Bot::Constants qw(:file);

    my $bot = MediaWiki::Bot->new();
    my $file_existence = $bot->test_image_exists("File:...");

    # Make sense of MediaWiki::Bot's random numbers
    if ($file_existence == FILE_LOCAL) {
        # Get from local media repository
    }
    elsif ($file_existence == FILE_SHARED) {
        # Get from shared (remote) media repository
    }

DESCRIPTION

Exportable constants used by MediaWiki::Bot. Use these constants in your code to avoid the use of magical numbers, and to ensure compatibility with future changes in MediaWiki::Bot.

You can also import :constants or any constant name(s) from MediaWiki::Bot:

    use MediaWiki::Bot qw(:constants);
    use MediaWiki::Bot qw(PAGE_NONEXISTENT);

CONSTANTS

The available constants are divided into 5 tags, which can be imported individually:

  • err - the error constants, inherited from MediaWiki::API

  • bool - boolean constants

  • page - page existence

  • file - file (image/media) existence status (which is not boolean)

  • ns - some namespace numbers. Achtung! Incomplete! Use MediaWiki::Bot's functions for getting namespace information for your wiki.

EXPORTS

No symbols are exported by default. The available tags are err, bool, page, file, ns, and all.
