Note: The [machine_type_id] is mandatory. Refer to getAllMachines for further details.
Note: The [paarent_type_id] is optional and is discussed further below.
Note: There are many thousands of things for some machines (for example, Spectrum 48K). Use this call with caution. Make your call to this once, store the data and then parse it locally for items that may be of interest. Never build an application that calls this frequently.
The following call, substituting 7 (Acorn Electron) for the [machine_type_id]:
"show_title":"!Amxcon To Risc OS Sprites"
"show_title":"Zorakk The Conqueror"
Value Data Type
!Amxcon To Risc OS Sprites
Your application should find it easy to get any interesting Thing IDs from the associative array in the response.
Whilst the above should satisfy most needs, there is an additional, optional parameter called [paarent_type_id]. This is a filter and including it will narrow down the subset of data which
the call returns. This list of integers that paarent_type_id must take, if you use it, are available by calling
getAllPaarentTypes and will narrow down the thing_ids returned to
the type of thing you request.
The calls using the [paarent_type_id] parameter are best illustrated by examples.
