Subject: (Ab)use of F<...> for urls/email
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 598b
Several files (e.g. lib/IO/Uncompress/, lib/IO/Compress/, ...) use F<...> in their POD for URLs and email addresses. This is annoying because F<...> is meant for filenames. More specifically, I wanted to write an automatic script to make sure all files referenced by F<...> actually exist. Now IO::Compress requires special handling. It also means the URLs aren't clickable when rendered to HTML (e.g. on ). The URLs should use L<...> instead; not sure about the email addresses
