in reply to Shortcut to Wolfram|Alpha [wolfram://]

I have never heard of them before, and it seems like more of a corporate web site than a research engine. Now you argued that it may be useful. However when I typed in Perl this is what I get...

* Mathematica form

Perl (male given name in the US)

Information for US births:
rank     | beyond 1000th
fraction | less than 1 in 12500 people (0.008%)
number   | < 200 people per year 
(US data based on 2008 births and other SSA registrations in the US)

Based upon the fact that Perl is considered a mans name rather than a programming language I fail to see the deep need for a shortcut for this web site.
