i used the code from google as a base for making a perlmonks bookmarklet. right click the link below, and add it to your bookmarks. if you put it in netscape's toolbar folder, you have quick access to PM nodes. if you highlight something and then click it, it will look for a node named whatever you had highlighted. otherwise it pops up a search box.


hope you find this useful. let me know what you think!

Update by vroom:

I think this will work for those of you forced into using IE although I haven't tested it

<A HREF="javascript:q=(document.frames.length? +eateRange().text);if(q<=0){void(q=prompt('Enter text to search E2.'+(q?'':'Search PerlMonks: enter terms or highligh +t something E2'),''))};if(q)location.href=''+escape(q +)">pm!</A>
michael d. ivey,

    I click it and it just pops up a nice debug box saying that the object doesn't support that property or method.
      Hmm, very strange. It works ok in Netscape, but not in Internet Explorer. On my machine, it doesn't do anything in IE.

    Very nice, ivey. Works well in Netscape 4.7 under Solaris.
