     3''(since [milestone:0.10])''

     5== Definition ==
     6
     7An InterWiki link can be used for referring to a Wiki page
     8located in another Wiki system, and by extension, to any object
     9located in any other Web application, provided a simple URL
     10mapping can be done.
     11
     12== Link Syntax ==
     13
     14{{{
     15<target_wiki>(:<identifier>)+
     16}}}
     17
     18The link is composed by the targeted Wiki (or system) name,
     19followed by a column (e.g. {{{MeatBall:}}}),
     20followed by a page specification in the target.
     21Note that, as for InterTrac prefixes, InterWiki prefixes are case insensitive.
     22
     23The target Wiki URL is looked up in a the InterMapTxt wiki page,
     24modelled after
     25[http://www.usemod.com/cgi-bin/mb.pl?InterMapTxt MeatBall:InterMapTxt].
     26
     27In addition to traditional InterWiki links, where the target
     28is simply ''appended'' to the URL,
     29Trac supports parametric InterWiki URLs:
     30identifiers `$1`, `$2`, ... in the URL
     31will be replaced by corresponding arguments.
     32The argument list is formed by splitting the page identifier
     33using the ":" separator.
     34
     35== Examples ==
     36
     37If the following is an excerpt of the InterMapTxt page:
     38
     39{{{
     40= InterMapTxt =
     41== This is the place for defining InterWiki prefixes ==
     42
     43Currently active prefixes: [[InterWiki]]
     44
     45This page is modelled after the MeatBall:InterMapTxt page.
     46In addition, an optional comment is allowed after the mapping.
