readTopic( $web, $topic, $rev ) -> ( $meta, $text )

Read topic text and meta data, regardless of access permissions.

  • $web - Web name, required, e.g. 'Main'
  • $topic - Topic name, required, e.g. 'TokyoOffice'
  • $rev - revision to read (default latest)
Return: ( $meta, $text ) Meta data object and topic text

$meta is a perl 'object' of class TWiki::Meta. This class is fully documented in the source code documentation shipped with the release, or can be inspected in the lib/TWiki/Meta.pm file.

This method ignores topic access permissions. You should be careful to use checkAccessPermissions to ensure the current user has read access to the topic.

Since: TWiki::Plugins::VERSION 1.000 (7 Dec 2002)


sub readTopic { my( $web, $topic ) = @_; ASSERT($TWiki::Plugins::SESSION) if DEBUG;

return $TWiki::Plugins::SESSION->{store}->readTopic( undef, $web, $topic, undef, 0 ); }

Oops. The pod was right. SVN 6317 CC

Summary either the pod lies, or the function lies (what does $rev do?)
