Wayback Machine API parameters

Wayback machine offers an API allowing you to download information. There are actually multiple APIs and after searching for a few hours I really can't manage to do the following:

Using the wayback machine API, I am trying to get a list of all domains indexed on 06/06/15.

I have read the documentation here

https://archive.org/help/wayback_api.php

but I can't find it...

I expected something like this to work:

http://archive.org/wayback/available?url=*&timestamp=20150606

Answer

here's an example:

http://archive.org/wayback/available?http://sourceforge.net/projects/=%27+url+%27&timestamp=20131006000000

make sure you have the correct timestamp value

These are the lines i used to generate urls. It's in python:

url = "http://sourceforge.net/projects/"+name.rstrip()

wbm_url = 'http://archive.org/wayback/available?url='+url+'&timestamp=20131006000000'
