The major problem is getting the results into a table as the native format
of pagelist and searchresults

Some examples of table formats are here:


Either pagelist or searchresults can find 'Hello World'; simply added the
quoted string to the directive. Anything not in the form of key=value is
taken to be a string that must be in the page (unless preceded by a -).
Searches are case insensitive.

Unfortunately these are regexs and do not recognize wildcards (wildcards can
be used in some of the paired parameters).  You might need to write/find a
recipe to do that. If you know any php this should not be especially
difficult as page text is (sort of) plain text.
