What can this extension do?[edit]

Downloads a RAW copy of <tag>data</tag> in a file
Useful e.g. to download a script or a patch
It also allows what is called Literate Programming
I think all the extensions section of MediaWiki could benefit from this extension as it's full of code snippets to copy/paste manually...


Inject the newly defined parser functions in your page and users will be able to download your scripts or patches right away!
See the page of the extension for some examples, the code of the extension itself is written in Literate Programming style.

Download instructions[edit]
