Dear developers,

I think I discovered a bug in your fantastic module.

Version: WWW-Wikipedia-2.01
Perl: 5.8
OS: Windows 7

#!/usr/bin/perl -w

use WWW::Wikipedia;
use Encode;

my $wiki = WWW::Wikipedia->new();
my $entry = $wiki->search( 'Rotation' );
my @languages_available = $entry->languages();

foreach (@languages_available) {
    print "$_\n";
Unfortunately  the languages in which an entry is available (as what we see in a normal Browser) are not rendered by the module. See also Perl Monks:

Thank you very much
