in reply to how to do perldoc links with special characters

This works cause I translated the '?' back.

[doc://perlfaq5#How-can-I-use-Perl's--i-option-from-within-a-program?|this]

Don't know if there is any ambiguity, otherwise I would pray to the gods humbly asking for a fix! =)

    Actually it doesn't. It still goes to the page but not the anchor.

    Update: I am using IE8 but I went ahead and tested your link on Chrome. So the '?' part is solved but the question of the apostrophe remains.

      Well works for me in FF!

      Which browser do you use?

      Maybe it's a FF DWIM feature. I'm too lazy to look up the specs now...

      That link works for me using firefox 20 on Linux. Maybe a browser/OS thing ?

[usemodperl]: corion baby you have done nothing of the sort
[usemodperl]: asking how to download from cpan with core perl via http is unreasonable???
[Corion]: usemodperl: No, asking is not unreasonable. Insisting that it must always keep working for you is unreasonable.
[Corion]: But again, you haven't explained why your users need to download, or why they need to download via http, or why you can't host the SSL-stripper yourself.
[choroba]: Wait a second. Does shutting down search.cpan.org mean the cpan clients can no longer use their urllist?
[usemodperl]: i'm under no obligation to explain myself mommy, and i'm not insisting, just asking a simple question
[Veltro]: So, I'm confused on the matter actually. There are locked-down computers, but they need updates. How does that work? Isn't that contradictary?
[usemodperl]: EXACTLY
[usemodperl]: and the https only situation makes it even worse
[Veltro]: How is that 'exactly'. Locked-down means you don't change or update. So why do you need to access CPAN?

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
