in reply to Goodbye search.cpan.org

Are the monastery syntax [mod://...] and related Shortcuts going to change where they point, or is it going to rely on the automatic redirection at the other end?

    While I'm sad to see search.cpan.org go, as it's my preferred site, I expect that we will change the mod:// and dist:// shortcuts to the metacpan site.

      Why not wait and see how they do the redirect?

        The redirect, however it works, will be a temporary solution at best. A kludg. If metacpan is to be "the" "authoritative" index site for perl modules etc., then the pm shortcuts will be modified to go straight there. It's not like this sort of thing hasn't happened in the past already.

        I reckon we are the only monastery ever to have a dungeon stuffed with 16,000 zombies.

    This is a good question, and seems like the smart thing to do. I'll raise the issue. Even if they didn't it sounds like the redirect will cater for this, but where possible it'd make a lot of sense to alter the code here for [mod://] to do the same as [metamod://].

      With so many good Perl programmers here...

      Can Perlmonks not provide an extract of all the links in every post ever made?

      Turn it into some kind of Hackathon, best algorithm that can replace all links to the new site wins 1000 experience points :P

        I'm pretty sure that they're only converted from the short cuts ([mod://]) on page render, so when the code changes, they'll all go to the right place.

    I've been using

    [cpan://...]

    for my module references. Whoops!
