wikipedia2text Whitespace fixes Jan 28, 2017



A Shell script to query the Wikipedia.

This script fetches Wikipedia articles (currently supports around 30 Wikipedia languages) and displays them as plain text in a pager or just sends the text to standard out. Alternatively it opens the Wikipedia article in a (possibly GUI) web browser or just shows the URL of the appropriate Wikipedia article.

###Installation copy wikipedia2text into your $PATH

alternatively, on debian or derivitatives, you can install it using your packages manager: sudo apt-get install wikipedia2text
