decodeURI "does not decode escape sequences that could not have been introduced by encodeURI."

In other words, decodeURI won't return an invalid URI, like decoding %3A does or could do. You can't safely decode an entire URI. Each path segment, each attribute key and each attribute value must be isolated before they can be decoded. For example http%3A//www.google.com/ (a relative URI) and http://www.google.com/ (an absolute URI) are not equivalent.

Not what you want:

decodeURI("http://search.cpan.org/search?mode=module&query=XML%3A%3APa +rser")

What you want:

decodeURIComponent("XML%3A%3AParser")

Since your code already extracts the compenent, simply use

clickedLink = "[cpan://" + decodeURIComponent(array[1]) + "]";

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
