A web-based "round-trip" HTML edi­tor. You can code HTML and see how it looks on the side, or write text with for­mat­ting and see cor­re­spond­ing HTML inter­ac­tively. Uses IE spe­cific func­tions so cur­rently works only with IE, but should give you ideas.

Perl Dig­ger is a free­ware Perl script to dig for infor­ma­tion about the server-side envi­ron­ment includ­ing a list of all installed Perl mod­ules with a handy link to their doc­u­men­ta­tion at CPAN. The script is based on sim­ple CSS, so you can eas­ily mod­ify how it looks.

Web­site URLs are long and dif­fi­cult to remem­ber. SnipURL allows you to 'snip' your long URLs into small, friendly and per­sis­tent links for shar­ing and remem­ber­ing. Free!

Web­site URLs are long and dif­fi­cult to remem­ber. SnipURL allows you to 'snip' your long URLs into small, friendly and per­sis­tent links for shar­ing and remem­ber­ing. Free!

Fol­low­ing are some fea­tures of SnipURL –

1. SHORTEN LONG, DIFFICULT-TO-REMEMBER URLs
Web­site URLs are get­ting longer and cum­ber­some. Not only are they dif­fi­cult
to remem­ber, it is also a pain send­ing them in emails because they
wrap on to more than one line and become un-clickable! SnipURL is a
fast and free ser­vice that allows you to "snip" your long URLs into small, com­pact links for shar­ing in emails and remem­ber­ing easily.

Con­sider a web URL like the fol­low­ing (It is a real web­site, go
ahead and click it if you wish) –

Some­thing

After "snip­ping" the same above URL looks like this –


http://snipurl.com/d (20 char­ac­ters)
http://snipurl.com/memento (26 characters)

or

http://snurl.com/d (18 char­ac­ters)
http://snurl.com/memento (24 characters)

SnURL and SnipURL are the same domain. Note that these four URLs are small so you can send them in emails with­out the fear of them wrap­ping, mean­ing­ful so you can remem­ber and share them in the future, and per­ma­nent so if your under­ly­ing URL expires or changes you can always mod­ify your snipped URL. (Asa bonus, you can even see the pop­u­lar­ity of you URLs by view­ing how many peo­ple clicked on it). Snip­ping is easy. You can set up a short­cut (book­marklet) on your browser and you're ready to go.


2. IN FIVE LANGUAGES (and more com­ing soon!)
The web­site
can be viewed in Eng­lish,
Chi­nese,
Japan­ese,
Span­ish and
French. We are also
work­ing on text-only
ver­sions
in each of these lan­guages so that makes it 10 types
of web­sites as we write this. Among these lan­guages, we cover at
least around 80% of the world if not more.


3. MORE INTUITIVE URLs WITH NICKNAMES
Don't like URLs
like
target="_blank">http://snipurl.com/h because they are just some
ran­dom text? Then you can make

target="_blank">http://snipurl.com/digicam_review and post more
intu­itive URLs to your mail­ing lists or in your newslet­ters with
sophis­ti­cated user track­ing etc.

4. PROTECTED SNIPPED URLs (PRIVATE)
Wor­ried that
peo­ple can basi­cally guess
http://snipurl.com/1 or
http://snipurl.com/2 or
http://snipurl.com/<some
sequence here
>? But want to have a URL that you wish to
track BUT only with users you send the URL to? Then you can
"pro­tect" your snip­pings with a key­code. SO instead of a URL such
as http://snipurl.com/i, it will
become
http://snipurl.com/i-secret
where "secret" was your pass­word. Pri­vate "snip­pings" are excluded
from our sta­tis­tics or search of course.


5. INTUITIVE STATISTICS & SEARCH IN "MYSNIPURL"
A
quick reg­is­tra­tion process gives you access to all the URLs you
have snipped in one screen, along with click-through sta­tis­tics.
You can also search for the URLs you have snipped by enter­ing
key­words that were con­tained in the orig­i­nal link or the nick­names
you gave to your snipped URLs. Apart from your own URLs, we also
have some pop­u­lar sta­tis­tics under the
EVERYTHING ELSE sec­tion, which includes for
instance the Most Pop­u­lar
Snip­pings
.


6. EDIT SNIPPINGS!
If your under­ly­ing link has expired
or is dead­link, you can always edit your snip­ping from the
MYSNIPURL page. (None of the com­pa­ra­ble web­sites that we are aware
of offer a pos­si­bil­ity to edit your snippings).


7. SHORTCUT
A spiffy short­cut allows you to add a
"book­marklet" to your browser and "snip" URLs quickly (for peo­ple
who do not under­stand book­marklets, we have a lit­tle visual help:

onclick="window.open(this.href, this.target,'status=yes,width=780,height=569'); return false"
title="Opens in a new win­dow: How to drag the shortcut">http://snipurl.com/SnipThis.htm
which is a flash ani­ma­tion and opens in a new win­dow or a
more detailed
FAQ
).

  • Copy to clip­board quickly (pop up win­dow closes auto­mat­i­cally
    after you copy the snipped URL in your clipboard)
  • Share the snipped URL right from this website
  • Com­pose new mails (using your default email client) …the
    snipped URL is auto­mat­i­cally inserted

8. A PUBLIC STATISTICS PAGE WITH FLOOD CONTROL
A pub­lic
sta­tis­tics page
(http://snipurl.com/else.php)
allows you to see the most pop­u­lar snip­pings. A "flood con­trol"
mech­a­nism is imple­mented in this web­page so that unfairly "bumped"
accesses to URLs are care­fully chaffed out. And of course, users
can search these too. "PROTECTED" URLs are not included in this
pub­lic view of course.


9. REAL REDIRECTS
SnipURL will also let you do "deep
snip­ping". So if your snipped web­site is
"http://snipurl.com/e" (which
points to the web­site
"http://www.copyright.gov")
and you have direc­to­ries and files below that level, you can access
them using
"http://snipurl.com/e/carp/index.html"
which is actu­ally
http://www.copyright.gov/carp/index.html.


10. SPAM CONTROL
If a snipped redi­rec­tion is sus­pected
unfair use of our ser­vices and is in vio­la­tion of our Terms of Use,
we reserve the right to sus­pend the snip­ping. An exam­ple is http://snipurl.com/th.


11. VISUAL INDICATION OF URL TYPES
When in the sta­tis­tics web­page, a visual icon indi­cates what the nature of the
under­ly­ing URL is. E.g., http://snipurl.com/else.php, so that you can decide before you unwit­tingly click on an exe­cutable or a PDF file for instance.

12. PERMANANT SNIPPINGS!
Your snipped or short­ened
URLs will be left as they are (you can always edit them too, of
course). Snipped URLs never die, they just get spam pro­tected,
if any­thing.
:)

13. TEXT-ONLY
VERSION FOR DIAL-UP USERS, OR FOR

target="_blank">MINIMALISTS IN GENERAL

If you find graph­ics obstruct­ing your work (although they make the
infor­ma­tion more visu­ally intu­itive, so we would rec­om­mend using
this ver­sion if pos­si­ble), then you can use our toned-down text
ver­sion as well. Read more about this in our FAQ.

14. A PERL API
SnipURL now exists as a Perl API for those who are inter­ested! Click here to go get the mod­ule at CPAN. (Thanks to Taguchi-san of Cisco for let­ting us know about this)
