I'm trying to run a script to collect some data from Wikipedia for the first time and I've run into this measure. Is there any way I could see the format of the user_agent string that Wikimedia expects so as to properly format my settings? I tried a vernacular description, but still ended up with the "give a descriptive user agent" response. Elijahmeeks 02:05, 11 April 2011 (UTC)

Never mind, I didn't realize I had to set it in curl instead of as the usual initialization.Elijahmeeks 02:26, 11 April 2011 (UTC)
