If you think it's a good idea, then what about changing [google://] to point to your search engine of choice?

It would be a lot more work - extending the database, providing a mechanism for people to choose their search engine through user settings, etc

But far more importantly, it is pointless - why provide a link to something, if the reader might end up somewhere where the content is different? "CPAN" ne "KOBE". While Randy Kobe's site mirrors the modules and metadata, it doesn't mirror the site content - it is presented in a different way. Perhaps if I use the [cpan://] link, I WANT you to go to CPAN, not some other site.

On the other hand, there are a lot of tags now to remember, and these will grow, but it seems meaningless to me to have a link in a Perlmonks post that could lead to a number of different sites.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —

    [perldigious]: That's awesome erix. One of my work friends, who coincidentally convinced me to learn Perl originally, has a Finnish pen-pal. I showed him this and he immediately wanted to send it along to her.
    [perldigious]: Also coincidentally, I'm currently in the middle of a winter storm that has dropped 1 foot of snow and is expected to drop another. I might have to adapt this for customers/vendors who come visit and put it at the beggining of every presentation I give.
    [Discipulus]: the photo was removed... Cyrano de Berjerac was not of the same idea..
    [stevieb]: perldigious: video near our hq in Montreal. Here in Calgary, it's -28c... we've only got 3" of snow so far, but there are several feet in the mountains already
    [perldigious]: Snowshoeing time stevieb? I need to buy a pair so I can walk my German Shepherd properly through the country.
