To this end:
- Simple searches on PM can be linked by putting the search term in square brackets. For example, I could search on finding common data in a hash by specifying [finding common data in a hash]
- I can duplicate a http://search.cpan.org search using our beloved [cpan://] shortcut. For example, looking for CSV file is a snap with [cpan://CSV file]
- I would love to see a similar mechanism for super-searches, though I'm not sure how the syntax would look... [super://terms to search|option;option] or something. It's complex enough that adding such a thing would only be useful if the SuperSearch results page could be coaxed into providing the text for easy copy-n-paste to a node.
- Easier, perhaps, and almost as useful, would be a shortcut like [google://terms to search]. This would be used in the same way as the CPAN search, and might result in "I did a google search for foo bar, and found this nugget: (link)".
