in thread "or die" versus "|| die"

They mean the same thing semantically, but they are not interchangable. The difference is precedence. See perlop.

Be your own disciple, fan the sparks of will
For all of us waiting, your kingdom will come

[atcroft]: Lady_Aleena: I found the L<name|section> syntax, which describes linking to a perl manual page, and L<text|url> to link to a web page. The reason I asked was because I was on search.cpan.org looking at a module,
[atcroft]: and it referred to several other modules, but the links went to metacpan.org. I found that a bit of a surprise, and it got me wondering if there was a "standard" way to link to other modules in the documentation on CPAN.
[Lady_Aleena]: atcroft. maybe look at raw PODs. There is also L<foo|http://foo. com> and some might be linking directly to meta::cpan.
[Lady_Aleena]: Oops, didn't read the L<text|url> right.
