Description: beside smart bookmarks you have searchplugins in firefox. unfortunately in the mozilla addon repo doesn't have one for CPAN, but David showed how to get one. but because ff3 has a new API we need an update which i deliver here now:
<SearchPlugin xmlns="">
<Description>Comprehensive Perl Archive Network</Description>
<Image width="16" height="16">data:image/x-icon,%00%00%01%00%01%00%10%
<Url type="text/html" method="GET" template="
  <Param name="query" value="{searchTerms}"/>
  <Param name="mode" value="all"/>

    Actually it does exist, but not in the "easy to find/general public targeted" search tool. It's on mycroft and there even are several variants. You'll find many other search engine gems on Mycroft...
        Great :) I found it so cool I advertised it on reddit ....

[GotToBTru]: i guess it's a placeholder, the code will only fill it in if there is nothing else to use
[GotToBTru]: but then .. if you have nothing to say, why not say nothing?
[MidLifeXis]: I have a user who has a lot of say on how some of our processes work that abhors significant blanks. Perhaps that is a part of it. A not-so-obvious "this space intentionally left blank" indicator.
[MidLifeXis]: On the back end, however, that doesn't mean that i have to use that value to indicate "undefined", no matter how much he thinks I should.
