How to acces wikipedia article text without refrences

For my technical documentation page, I would like to use the text from this Wikipedia article: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IOS

So far I’ve just been copying and pasting the article into my html and manually deleting the references ([1], [2], [3], etc.) but it’s been very time consuming and I haven’t made much progress. Is there a way to access the article text without the references?

Seems pretty trivial to just paste it into your editor then zap them with search-and-replace.

Each reference has a different number inside it so I’d need to search and replace each number.

That’s what regex search and replace is for. And if you’re not familiar with regexes, then you’re in the right place to learn them :slight_smile:
