Output from article search

PetScan (previously CatScan) is an external tool that searches an article category (and its subcategories) according to specified criteria to find articles, stubs, images, and categories. It can also be used for finding all articles that belong to two specified categories (the intersection). CatScan was developed by the German Wikipedian Duesentrieb and is run on Wikimedia Toolforge, as part of Wikimedia Foundation's cloud computing environment.[1]
