Detailed Description

The web entry point for all Action API queries, handled by ApiMain and ApiBase subclasses.

This is used by bots to fetch content and information about the wiki, its pages, and its users. See https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/API for more information.

It begins by constructing a new ApiMain using the parameter passed to it as an argument in the URL ('?action='). It then invokes "execute()" on the ApiMain object instance, which produces output in the format specified in the URL.
