Module:Language/data/ISO 639-3/make/doc

From IOL Wiki

This is the documentation page for Module:Language/data/ISO 639-3/make

This is a crude tool that reads a local copy of a file from and extracts the information necessary to create the data table held by Module:Language/data/ISO_639-3


To use this tool:

  1. open a blank sandbox page and paste this {{#invoke:}} into it at the top line:
    {{#invoke:Language/data/ISO 639-3/make|ISO_639_3_extract|file-date=YYYYMMDD}}
    where YYYYMMDD is year, month, day from the .tab filename (used to place a file-date comment in Module:Language/data/ISO_639-3)
  2. go to and download the Complete Code Tables Set UTF-8 version zip file
  3. unzip the and open the file with a plain-text editor
  4. copy the data from the editor and paste it into the sandbox page below the {{#invoke:}}
  5. click Show preview
  6. wait
  7. get result

There is some crude error checking that will insert an error message in the output. No guarantees that such messaging will be helpful. Search for the word 'error' in the tool's output.
