To use the http://p3rl.org site directly from emacs, in a similar manner as http://php.net is used, add the following Lisp code to your Emacs settings (.emacs file):
(defcustom perl-search-url "http://p3rl.org/" "URL at which to search for documentation on a word" :type 'string :group 'perl) (defun jj-perl-search-documentation () "Search Perl documentation for the word at the point." (interactive) (browse-url (concat perl-search-url (current-word t)))) (global-set-key "\C-c\C-f" 'jj-perl-search-documentation)
Place the point ("cursor") on or directly after a Perl function, or any word, and type "C-c C-f".
