Brings back an array of all the magazines on the Everygamegoing site.

This is one of the simplest commands to use as it does not require any parameters.

A "magazine" for the purpose of the underlying data storage, is considered to be a "run of a magazine". It is not an individual issue of a magazine. So this call is effectively an enquiry of the Everygamegoing site asking it "Which magazines do you feature?" and the response is a list of the magazines similar to the following:

{
	"response":
	{
		"count":24,
		"magazines":
		{
			"A&B Computing":
			{
				"mag_name":"A&B Computing",
				"mag_id":6,
				"mag_language":"English",
				"num_issues":84
			},
			"ACE":
			{
				"mag_name":"ACE",
				"mag_id":19,
				"mag_language":"English",
				"num_issues":1
			},
			...
			"Zzap":
			{
				"mag_name":"Zzap",
				"mag_id":11,
				"mag_language":"English",
				"num_issues":106
			}
		}
	}
}

 
The fields returned are all self-explanatory but a table explaining them is given below.

Key Human-readable Explanation Value Data Type Value Example
count Count Integer 24
magazines Magazines Array  
Key Human-readable Explanation Value Data Type Value Example
[mag_id] Mag ID Integer 6
[mag_name] Mag Title String A&B Computing
[mag_language] Mag Written Language String English
[num_issues] Number Of Issues Integer (See below) 84

Note that the key of the magazines array matches the value of the element 'mag_name' inside it.

The [num_issues] figure tells you how many issues of that magazine have been entered on the site. This does not necessarily equal the amount of issues of that magazine that actually exist.
