Template documentation

This template has a different purpose than the template of the same name on English Wikipedia. For syntax highlighting, see {{code2}}.

This templates codes a string according to Template:Nfchr into "page title" form, so that it can be passed on to a template as a single parameter, and can be decomposed with #titleparts and Template:Digit.

The maximum string length is 119 (excess characters are ignored), resulting in a "page title" of 254 characters. These resulting characters are digits and slashes only, so the string is a valid page title in canonical form, so it is suitable for application of #titleparts without being affected by automatic conversions.

It is an expensive string operation: for the long example below we have:

Preprocessor node count: 19659/1000000
Post-expand include size: 30013/2048000 bytes
Template argument size: 293342/2048000 bytes
Expensive parser function count: 0/500

Therefore it can be useful to substitute the result, or copy it manually from preview to insert it in a wikitext.

The inverse of this template is Template:Chr119.
