|Subject:||URLEncoding issue with metacpan.org "News" feed|
MetaCPAN's "Recent" feed works well and Perlanet creates links like the following for aggregation:The "News" feed at MetaCPAN ( however uses URLs and links like this (with anchors): which are lowercase with white space removed (note the "#"). When Perlnaet tries to create an aggregation from this feed it URL encodes "#" as %@# the resulting links look like: and thus break since if # is urlencoded it is not seen as an anchor, but as a literal character in the path. I have no idea if this is a Perlanet bug or not nor how or where to fix it. There may be some sort of discrepancy between the RDF/Atom feed describing the page and the actual source of he actual page. A work around might be to add "/" to the end of the URL which causes "%23" to be seen as an anchor. For example: does find the page - if not the actual anchor location. Or perhaps adjusting settings when the HTML::Scrubber object is created - but I haven't investigated further.
