perldoc.perl.org usable again

It appears that https://perldoc.perl.org/ has recently changed to look and feel identical to https://perldoc.pl/ so all the old links to the former site will now hopefully result in usable pages once again.

    It's not just the same look and feel; it's the same site. Dan Book took over perldoc.perl.org.

    From what I can tell, perldoc.perl.org is a CDN proxy over perldoc.pl.

    That's great news, perldoc.pl has more and better support for deep-links into documents.

    like Encode#find_mime_encoding

    Not sure about this when it comes to deep-links. The URL-Encoding of the anchors was slightly different, IIRC.

      No guarantees about deep links as you mention, but all existing page links should work or redirect to an appropriate place, I would consider it a bug if it doesn't. I only know about the links the latest iteration of the site supported though, if you find any from a previous iteration that don't work properly please report it. -Dan

        Many thanks for all your hard work on a great interface to the documentation. Much appreciated.
