Here is the list of all articles on the excellent guide Wikitravel.org:


PROBLEM: It also includes redirects.
For each real article there are tens of redirects, so the list linked above is unusable.

I could click each link to check whether it is a redirect or not, but that would hit their server too hard, or take weeks.

QUESTION: Is there an URL option or other trick, to filter out redirect pages?

For the curious: Wikitravel's data is copyleft, but they do not provide database dumps.

It appears that in the list of all articles (linked above), each link to a redirect is in a <div class="allpagesredirect"> ... </div> tag.

That makes it easy to filter out redirects.
