Subject: (Ab)use of F<...> for urls/email
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 598b
Several files (e.g. lib/IO/Uncompress/Unzip.pm, lib/IO/Compress/Gzip.pm, ...) 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 metacpan.org: https://metacpan.org/pod/release/PMQS/IO-Compress-2.069/lib/IO/Compress/Zip.pm#SEE-ALSO ). The URLs should use L<...> instead; not sure about the email addresses
