Ah, it seems I am not very good at writing documentations.

What would be cool for extentions, holli, is if you did likewise for perldoc, doc, and cpan links.
Actually I have a new version ready that works for cpan://* and kobes://* links, but there is a ugly bug. The entity %3A (double colon) gets not correctly decoded by the decodeURI function. I am trying to figure out why.

As for the perldoc, I will add that when I am sure the currently selected perldoc site will not change.

    As a quick hack, you could do decodeURI(s).replace('%3a',':');.
      Thanks a lot The Mad Hatter. But that must be decodeURI(s).replace(/%3a/gi,':');. Otherwise only the first occurance is replaced.

        Urk, you're right. Sorry about that.

    That might be because decodeURI is a complement to encodeURI which encodes non-valid entities. : is avalid entity in a URI

    decodeURI "does not decode escape sequences that could not have been introduced by encodeURI."

    In other words, decodeURI won't return an invalid URI, like decoding %3A does or could do. You can't safely decode an entire URI. Each path segment, each attribute key and each attribute value must be isolated before they can be decoded. For example http%3A//www.google.com/ (a relative URI) and http://www.google.com/ (an absolute URI) are not equivalent.

    Not what you want:

    decodeURI("http://search.cpan.org/search?mode=module&query=XML%3A%3APa +rser")

    What you want:

    decodeURIComponent("XML%3A%3AParser")

    Since your code already extracts the compenent, simply use

    clickedLink = "[cpan://" + decodeURIComponent(array[1]) + "]";
