All through these blog pages, I’ve been linking to CPAN modules I’m talking about so that it’s easy for readers to find them. I knew I was linking to specific versions, but couldn’t figure out how to link to the latest version of the module. I noticed the docs for Task::Kensho do it, and am going to start doing it too.
The secret is to use links like this: http://search.cpan.org/perldoc?Task%3A%3AKensho
The %3A are the URI encoding of a : so this goes to http://search.cpan.org/perldoc and searches for the module name automatically. Neat.
