Is it possible to search the wiki for only one language? (English in my case.) I mean, is it possible to exclude other languages from the results? I don't see the option in the "Advanced" search. I'm creating a shortcut, so maybe there's a way to specify in the url?
I'm afraid it's not possible atm.
Huh. I'd never heard of surfraw. (I guess it was originally written by Julian Assange!)
It looks interesting and very useful. Although I don't think it will help my specific case right now.
No, it's not possible to search only English pages at the moment.
By looking at the source of surfraw it doesn't seem to be able to help you.
If you want, it should be very easy to program a search tool that gets raw search results through API calls (see https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/API:Search, https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/API:Opensearch, https://wiki.archlinux.org/api.php), and then removes the entries with the language suffixes listed in https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/He … #Languages.
Finally, also the implementation of https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/He … uffixes.3F would solve this problem.
