You left out the mandatory "escape HTML entity" calls. Shame on you.
use HTML::Entities qw(encode_entities); use URI::Find; ... my $finder = URI::Find->new # instead of URI::Find::Schemeless ( sub { my ($uri, $originalUri) = @_; return join "", q/<a href="/, encode_entities("$uri"), q/">/, encode_entities($originalUri), q/>/; } ); ...
Yes, I've already complained to the author. He "fixed" the manpage incorrectly, by escaping the entire source text first. That breaks in-page URLs that look like http://example.com/foo/bar?a=b&c=d. {sigh} I was too worn out explaining to him why that was wrong to submit another fix.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
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.
