--[[
This module provides the core functionality to a set of templates used to
display a list of taxon name/authority pairs, with the taxon names optionally
italicized, wikilinked and/or emboldened. Such lists are usually part of
taxoboxes.

-- use a function from Module:TaxonItalics to italicize a taxon name
local TaxonItalics = require("Module:TaxonItalics")

local p = {}

--[[=========================================================================
Utility function to strip off any initial † present to mark the taxon as
extinct. The † must not be italicized, emboldened, or included in the
wikilinked text, so needs to be added back afterwards.
† is assumed to be present as one of:
* the unicode character †
* the HTML entity †
* the output of {{extinct}} – this will have been expanded before reaching this
  module and is assumed to have the form '<span ... </span>'
The function returns two values: the taxon name with any † before it removed
and either '†' if it was present or the empty string if not.
=============================================================================]]
function p.stripDagger(taxonName)
	local dagger = ''
	if mw.ustring.sub(taxonName,1,1) == '†' then
		taxonName = mw.ustring.sub(taxonName,2,#taxonName)
		dagger = '†'
	else 
		if string.sub(taxonName,1,8) == '&dagger;' then
			taxonName = string.sub(taxonName,9,#taxonName)
			dagger = '†'
		else
			-- did the taxon name originally have {{extinct}} before it?
			if (string.sub(taxonName,1,5) == '<span') and mw.ustring.find(taxonName, '†') then
				taxonName = string.gsub(taxonName, '^.*</span>', '', 1)
				dagger = '†'
			end
		end
	end
	return taxonName, dagger
end

--[[=========================================================================
The function returns a list of taxon names and authorities, appropriately
formatted.
Usage:
{{#invoke:TaxonList|main
|italic = yes - to italicize the taxon name
|linked = yes - to wikilink the taxon name
|bold = yes - to emboldent the taxon name
|incomplete = yes - to output "(incomplete)" at the end of the list
}}
The template that transcludes the invoking template must supply an indefinite
even number of arguments in the format
|Name1|Author1 |Name2|Author2| ... |NameN|AuthorN
=============================================================================]]
