Using p3rl.org for FF search keyword

by on Aug.19, 2011, under Perl

The lazy side of me enjoys Quick Search bookmarks in Firefox, so that I can type e.g. cpan ModuleName to look up a module on CPAN etc, pd perlfoo to look up the imaginary perlfoo documentation on perldoc, etc.

I also like p3rl.org‘s intelligent handling of short URLs, e.g. http://p3rl.org/Dancer, http://p3rl.org/perlrun etc.

It suddenly occurred to me to create a keyword search with the keyword p3, and the URL as http://p3rl.org/%s – now I can jump straight to pages I want with e.g. p3 Dancer, p3 perlrun etc.

My laziness likes this very much indeed.
