( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

The node 11118252 has a "special" link that contains a vertical bar (encoded as %7C). This link has been constructed by specifying the full href, as choroba told me in a private message. As the vertical bar cannot be used directly in a link at the monastery as it separates the location from the displayed text, it must be encoded in some way. Trying to use the path IO::Uncompress::Gunzip#Transparent-=>-0%7C1 with some shortcut schemas gives interesting results:

[metamod://IO::Uncompress::Gunzip#Transparent-=>-0%7C1] -> https://metacpan.org/pod/IO%3A%3AUncompress%3A%3AGunzip%23Transparent-%3D%3E-0%257C1
points to nowhere (404)

[doc://IO::Uncompress::Gunzip#Transparent-=>-0%7C1] -> http://perldoc.perl.org/IO/Uncompress/Gunzip.html#Transparent-%3D%3E-0%257C1
links to the page, but not to the specified section

[mod://IO::Uncompress::Gunzip#Transparent-=>-0%7C1] -> http://search.cpan.org/perldoc?IO%3A%3AUncompress%3A%3AGunzip%23Transparent-%3D%3E-0%257C1
links to the specified section

<EDIT> metacpan.org and search.cpan.org work just fine, when accessed with the original path component "as is". The perdoc.perl.org example is misleading, as there are no anchors within the page. </EDIT>

All the generated links (except the full href) have one thing in common: The percent sign becomes encoded as %25. It depends on the target side if this will be interpreted in a useful way. I didn't find any documentation on how to include a hex encoded value in a link. Obviously it is handled different in a full href. Is this a bug or is it a feature? If it's a feature, then another feature might be missing: including hex codes in a path.

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
