[Pmwiki-users] Single-Word WikiWords

I can come up with an easy way to automatically convert "Group.Name"
and "Group/Name" into links, but I suspect that's not exactly what you're
To rephrase your question -- are you looking for a method such that
single-word pagenames are automatically converted to a link if a
page by that name already exists? I.e., if I have pages named "Java",
"PHP", and "Perl", and I write the text
Dr. Patrick R. Michaud taught a course covering Perl and PHP.
then "Perl" and "PHP" would be links to the corresponding pages (because
they exist), while "Dr", "Patrick", and "Michaud" would be left alone?
I might be able to build something like this. OTOH, it may significantly
slow down the processing/formatting of pages, since every capitalized
word would have to be checked to determine if there's a page of the same name.
Let me know.
