I'm a Perl developer, so I often visit CPAN. I'd be happy if I could make my Pentadactyl understand command like

:cp List Util

to search CPAN for modules containing theese strings in its names. I already have CPAN search engine installed as Firefox addon, the only thing I need is the Pentadactyl API reference which I could not find.

If you already have the CPAN search engine, you should be able to do this simply with the :open command.

e.g.

:open cpan list util

You may need to define a search keyword for the CPAN search engine first, which you can do via

:dialog searchengines
