    When I first looked at the TIOBE methodology some years ago, all they did was searching google, yahoo and the microsoft search engine (precursor to bing) for "$language programming" and counted the matches, and did some kind of averaging.

    Needless to say that this correlates only very, very weakly with the actual popularity of the language.

    I believe that TIOBE now uses more sources, but IMHO the stigma of unscientific approach and FUD still sticks to their "data".

[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.
