in thread Bookmarklet to show deeplinks in perldoc.perl.org

If switching means that old doc-links will refer to perldoc.pl I'm not sure if URL paths are consistent.

OTOH, not switching would have the same problem, as perldoc.perl.org is messing with their own stuff.

But I'm not sure this is in fact a problem. [doc://open] has no URL paths.

direct auto-linking of bare http-URLs.

I have no idea what that means. Can you clarify? TIA.

      the #hash part for deep-linking to anchors

      Oh... So you're not talking about path parts. You're talking about fragment parts — URI parts

      So in some sense this is a form of link rot. I think there will always be some risk of this, since we don't have any control over how any external web site manages their anchors — nor indeed their paths — nor indeed even the domain names.

      It's the nature of the beast. People put external links in their posts; ten years later those links don't work. We just have to live with the risk.

      In general, I'd prefer to stay with perldoc.perl.org, since it is "official". I think we'd need a really compelling reason to switch to something else. Like we did with MetaCPAN.

        > You're talking about fragment parts URI parts

        the terminology varies depending on the source. the JS function to extract the fragment is called Location.hash()

        > this is a form of link rot.

        It's also varying with the version of perldoc. Strictly speaking we'd need to keep the version information too.

        I'm fine with this but facilitating deep-linking would help posting ...

        Well official is the release, we used to have our own, now totally outdated, copy.

        Like split
