You left out the mandatory "escape HTML entity" calls. Shame on you.

use HTML::Entities qw(encode_entities); use URI::Find; ... my $finder = URI::Find->new # instead of URI::Find::Schemeless ( sub { my ($uri, $originalUri) = @_; return join "", q/<a href="/, encode_entities("$uri"), q/">/, encode_entities($originalUri), q/>/; } ); ...
Yes, I've already complained to the author. He "fixed" the manpage incorrectly, by escaping the entire source text first. That breaks in-page URLs that look like http://example.com/foo/bar?a=b&c=d. {sigh} I was too worn out explaining to him why that was wrong to submit another fix.
