An interesting note; the system still list broken links that have been edited out of existence. I found a place where three links were used when one would do fine, and changed it, but it still lists all three links here. Is it pulling broken links from the Changes History too?

That should read "Revision History", by the way. Also, the wiki seems to be spawning links where they weren't intended. This happens when a word is made with two captials (ex; "SpaceDrake" on the Comments page). There's no "link" tag, but the wiki is interpeting it as a link anyway.

Yeah, it does that automatically. Add a tilde before the word ("~SpaceDrake") to keep it from happening. I had to go through and do that to a bunch of times MooMaa was mentioned, because it looked dumb to link it every time it showed up.

I believe this page is re-generated every now and then, not updated live. Fixed broken links will remain for a while. I don't know whether that's five minutes or two weeks or what, though.

anyone w/ c++ can rebuild this index. any takers?

Hmmm, I had a go:

- Downloaded the backup ZIP, extracted into c:\backup with WinZIP, verifying that filenames with ":" were renamed to "_"

- did "dir /b > in.dat" in c:\backup to generate the input list

- copy/pasted the cpp code into a new project and ran it.

On the face of it, it seemed to work okay, but when I checked the out.dat file, as well as a lot of WikiCode for the broken links, it also has some c++ fragment code in it, the list isn't sorted, the a-z headers are all at the bottom of the file and the number of broken links goes up to "2397"

Doesn't seem right to me, any ideas?

Well yeah... the page with the source code would be in the in.dat file, heheh *smacks forehead* took that out of in.dat and that made the c++ fragments go away... still not sure about the unsorted output, the list of names in "in.dat" are sorted alphabetically to begin with.

use sort to sort out.dat

Yeah, I figured out that removing "source for the broken link auTIMator" and "every link" from the in.dat was probably "A Good Thing" and then sorting it manually.

Well manually as in... not with the auTIMator. ;)

Oh cool, I've updated that now too. Nice utility, by the way. ;)

thanks.. on my work computer I have a version that strips out ~ from the links so they don't show up as broken when they really aren't, but I won't really be able to get source for that posted until next week.

I did wonder about that.. I might be able to fix it myself, but I really hate C++ so no promises. It's probably easier to just wait until next week. ;) What do you think of this? [auTIMator, Broken Link Generator] I thought it was more friendly than the straightforward source code.

I added a ~ fix today, seems to work okay.

new tool works great, love reading directly from the zip file! :)

It was a great idea to do that. Also I've updated the pages again following the Code Page discussions... it seems to be interpreting special characters okay now, at least over here.

I made an interesting modification to my C++ program. I search the list of pages for variations of the broken link (page name contained within the broken link, or vice versa) and output a list of possible mispellings.
It only generated a handful, and so I corrected them rather than making a page on the wiki for it, but handy none the less.

we'll have to update the C# before we can regenerate this page

don't know if anybody has noticed, but I'm trying to get rid of all of the broken "J" links... no reason really. Any help would be appreciated. :)

Interesting, the number of broken links is roughly equal to half the total pages. That's kind of scary.
