Apache::CustomKeywords is a customizable proxy/webapp to change your MSIE's Location box to your favourite toolbar!
See http://www.mozilla.org/docs/end-user/keywords.html for what Custom Keywords means in Mozilla. This module enables Custom Keywords in MSIE.
CustomKeyword settings shown in "SYNOPSIS", you type
cpan CustomKeywords or
google blah blah in your browser's Location: box, then you will be redirected to the page you wanna go to!
If your command is not recognized by this module, the first
CustomKeyword entry is used as default.
Here's the way this handler works:
There're two ways to let your browser use this module:
httpd.conf with a proxy version and set up your browser's proxy setting.
httpd.conf with psuedo MSN version and set up your Hosts file (
/etc/hosts in Un*x,
windows/system/drivers/etc/Hosts in Win32) or local DNS so that
auto.search.msn.com points to the server where this module is installed.
If you put
@ as a query in Location: box, MSIE recognizes it as protocol or authentication password stuff, hence this module might not work.
%sinterpolates to URI-Escaped string encoded in UTF8.
