Page contents not supported in other languages.

I struck through Lambert's W function on the list of pages said to need conversion. The Python function stated there is an executable, not pseudocode; aside from expressing the algorithm quite neatly, it provides the reader with a means to compute a nontrivial function. Rewriting it as pseudocode would reduce the usefulness of the article substantially. There are probably other articles on the list which would be similarly damaged by conversion to Wikicode. Wile E.

A couple, yes. I removed the other Python example, and the example using Javascript I'm still unsure about. I generally aim not to convert real code to wikicode without a compelling reason, and I'll try to stick to this policy in the future. Derrick Coetzee 00:09, 2 Oct 2004 (UTC)


Some people have objected to the title of this page as being too strong (suggesting that these pages must all be converted, or else!) I thought for a while but had trouble coming up with something brief that was less biased. If anyone else can come up with something that'd be great. Derrick Coetzee 00:22, 2 Oct 2004 (UTC)
