in reply to Do you hide .pl extension on web pages?

      How many people care enough about displaying cleaner urls to bother doing anything about this? And if you do, what do you do?

Myself the idea of hiding a ".pl" extension on a URL gets a non-committal "meh."

If I were really interested in doing that I supposed I could symlink to a filename devoid of the .pl but that might not work depending on how the server is configured. (I'll have to try that later.)

I see plenty of other examples of "unclean URLs" such as the Wall Street Journal's website and others...
