Module:Ns has subpages

Documentation for this module may be created at Module:Ns has subpages/doc

-- This module implements [[Template:Ns has subpages]].
-- While the template is fairly simple, this information is made available to
-- Lua directly, so using a module means that we don't have to update the
-- template as new namespaces are added.

	if not ns then

	-- for a majority of cases.
	local nsTable =[ns]

	-- Try using string matching to get the namespace from page names.
	-- Do a quick and dirty bad title check to try and make sure we do the same
	-- thing as {{NAMESPACE}} in most cases.

	-- If we still have no match then try the {{NAMESPACE}} parser function,
	-- which should catch the remainder of cases. Don't use a mw.title object,
	-- as this would increment the expensive function count for each new page
	-- tested.
