07:14 kentnl https://metacpan.org/search?q=perl&size=500 # searching for perl is broken again
07:15 kentnl https://metacpan.org/release/perl # 404
07:17 kentnl haarg: are there POD Formatters that will actually do something with URLs in an L<< description|target >> context other than HTML ? I don't seem to recall man or text renderers doing anything special and they just default to showing the text.
07:17 haarg metacpan is not the only way to view pod as html
07:20 kentnl yes. but there's a primary HTML renderer which can be adjusted to do something useful. So my question was "are there other places it would need to be fixed"
07:23 kentnl ( after all, the html renderer as far as I'm aware already uses either sco or m.org hrefs to modules anyway, so this is an extension of that mechnaism )
07:23 kentnl Pod::Markdown would need it too

09:53 dolmen kentnl: perldoc also shows the target
09:55 kentnl dolmen: hah. so it does. Thats weird.
09:55 kentnl L< Anything you want|Some::Module > only shows the left of the |, not the right.
09:56 kentnl but an explicit URI shows a <URIHERE> after the text.

10:18 dolmen weird? I like this behaviour
10:54 kentnl dolmen: I mean, its inconsistent.
10:54 kentnl One syntax suppresses the link, one exposes it.
10:54 kentnl well, they're both the same syntax.
10:57 kentnl or to put it differently: When you do L< X|http://y >, the reason it renders as "X <http://y>" is, I imagine, due to not being able to otherwise determine the URL in plain text.
10:57 kentnl So Its a bit odd that doing L< A puppy|Dist::Zilla > *doesnt* render as "A puppy <http://link/to/Dist::Zilla>"
