Module:Labelled list hatnote provides a handful of functions that make it easy to implement hatnotes that take the form of a label in front of a list of pages. See Module:Labelled list hatnote on Wikipedia for more details.

--                               Labelled list                                --

-- This module does the core work of creating a hatnote composed of a list    --
-- prefixed by a colon-terminated label, i.e. "LABEL: [andList of pages]",    --
-- for {{see also}} and similar templates.                                    --

local mHatlist = require('Module:Hatnote list')

-- Defaults global to this module

	label = 'See also', --Final fallback for label argument
	labelForm = '%s: %s',
	prefixes = {'label', 'label ', 'l'},
	template = 'Module:Labelled list hatnote'

-- Helper function that pre-combines display parameters into page arguments.
-- Also compresses sparse arrays, as a desirable side-effect.
function p.preprocessDisplays (args, prefixes)
	-- Prefixes specify which parameters, in order, to check for display options
	-- They each have numbers auto-appended, e.g. 'label1', 'label 1', & 'l1'
	prefixes = prefixes or defaults.prefixes
	local pages = {}
	for k, v in pairs(args) do
		if type(k) == 'number' then
			local display
			for i = 1, #prefixes do
				display = args[prefixes[i] .. k]
				if display then break end
			local page = display and
				string.format('%s|%s', string.gsub(v, '|.*$', ''), display) or v
			pages[#pages + 1] = page
	return pages

-- Produces a labelled pages-list hatnote.
-- The main frame (template definition) takes 1 or 2 arguments, for a singular
-- and (optionally) plural label respectively:
-- * {{#invoke:Labelled list hatnote|labelledList|Singular label|Plural label}}
-- The resulting template takes pagename & label parameters normally.
