in thread Opera + Firefox browser Shortcut for searching CPAN & Perldoc

Have you tested it? Accessing perldoc of a module in CPAN is done via authors directory. Hence your solution will fail.

Alternatively this is the snippet to access perldoc.com website. Applicable for both Opera and Firefox.
http://www.perldoc.com/cgi-bin/htsearch?words=%s&restrict=perl5.8.4

      Have you tested it?
      Yes. I have.
      In that case a modification need to be made for dbwiz's snippet (note the removed '=' sign):
      URL=http://search.cpan.org/perldoc?%s
      Then it'll work. Thanks for notifiying, PodMaster.

      Contrary to the search form at http://search.cpan.org, the redirection above appears to be case sensitive. E.g.

      http://search.cpan.org/perldoc?cgi
      fails.
