Template:High-use Template:Lua

This module creates language name (key) to language tag (value) support tables used by Module:Lang. Data are taken from Module:Lang/data:

  • rev_lang_table – data from the lang_name_table.lang table
  • rev_override_table – data from the override table

These reversed data tables are loaded and used by _name_from_tag().


local lang_data =  mw.loadData ('Module:Lang/data');							-- language name override and transliteration tool-tip tables
local lang_name_table = lang_data.lang_name_table;								-- language codes, names, regions, scripts, suppressed scripts

local lang_table = lang_name_table.lang;										-- language codes, names
local lang_dep_table = lang_name_table.lang_dep;								-- deprecated language codes, names
local override_table = lang_data.override;

local rev_lang_table = {};														-- same as lang_table reversed so language name is key and language tag is value
local rev_lang_dep_table = {};													-- same as lang_dep_table reversed so language name is key and language tag is value
local rev_override_table = {};													-- same as override_table except reversed
local dedabbed_names_list = {};													-- holds a list of dedabbed name and tags

Creates tag-from-name tables from the data in Module:Lang/data so that templates can get language tags from the
same names as the {{lang}} templates get from those tags.  The conversion prefers ISO 639-1 codes.

Data in these tables are used by tag_from_name() in Module:Lang

When <name> is disambiguated, will create an additional <name> entry without the dab as long as that action won't
conflict with actual undabbed names in the source.

<name> without dab is always added to the list; this rule arises because of the three Marwari language code/name pairs:
	mwr: Marwari																-– not dabbed
these will not have dedabbed entries because of mwr
	rwr: Marwari (India)
	mve: Marwari (Pakistan)

These all share the same base name so there will not not be an dedabbed entry:
	["yaka"] = "axk",															-- this would be wrong for two of these languages
	["yaka (central african republic)"] = "axk",
	["yaka (congo)"] = "iyx",
	["yaka (democratic republic of congo)"] = "yaf",

Say that we find "axk".  It has a dab so we add the dabbed form to rev_lang_table{}.  Then we look in
dedabbed_names_list{} to see if ["yaka"] is already there.  It's not, so we add this:
	["yaka"] = "axk",
Later we find "yaf".  It has a dab so we add the dabbed form to rev_lang_table{}.  Then we look in
dedabbed_names_list{} to see if ["yaka"] is already there.  It is, so that means that more than one language
code could create an dedabbed language name key; there can be only one.  Because ["yaka"] is already in the
dedabbed_names_list{} table we unset the ["yaka"] entry to empty string:
	["yaka"] = '',
later we find "iyx" and add it to rev_lang_table{}.  We look in dedabbed_names_list{} and find ["yaka"] has been
unset to empty string so do nothing.

When done adding names/codes to rev_lang_table{}, spin through dedabbed_names_list{} and add all non-empty-string
name/code pairs to rev_lang_table{}.

This does not catch things like overrides ["pa"] = "Punjabi" and ["pnb"] = "Punjabi".  "pa" and "pnb" are not
synonyms but because the names are the same, will be treated like synonyms ("pnb" promotes to "pa"). To avoid
this, disambiguate the override: ["pnb"] = {"Punjabi"} -> ["pnb"] = {"Punjabi (Western)"}
