       urlview - URL extractor/launcher

       urlview filename [ filename ... ]

       urlview	is a screen oriented program for extracting URLs from text files and displaying a
       menu from which you may launch a command to view a specific item.

       urlview attempts to read ~/.urlview upon startup.  If this file doesn't exist, it will try
       to  read  a  system  wide file in /etc/urlview.conf.  There are two configuration commands
       (order does not matter):

       REGEXP regexp
	      urlview uses a regular expression to extract URLs from the  specified  text  files.
	      \r,  \t,	\n  and  \f  are  all  converted to their normal printf(3) meanings.  The
	      default REGEXP is:

       (((http|https|ftp|gopher)|mailto):(//)?[^ <>"\t]*|(www|ftp)[0-9]?\.[-a-z0-9.]+)[^ .,;\t\n\r<">\):]?[^, <>"\t]*[^ .,;\t\n\r<">\):]

       COMMAND command
	      If the specified command contains a %s, it will be subsituted with the URL that was
	      requested,  otherwise  the URL is appended to the COMMAND string.  The default COM-
	      MAND is:


       Note: You should never put single quotes around the %s.	urlview does this  for	you,  and
       also  makes sure that single quotes eventually showing up inside the URL are handled prop-
       erly.  (Note that this shouldn't happen with the default regular expression, which explic-
       itly excludes single quotes.)

       WRAP  choice
	      Enable or disable URL wrapping. Valid values for choice are: yes, no (case insensi-
	      tive).  If this option is not supplied, the default behaviour is to  disable  wrap-

	      system-wide urlview configuration file

	      urlview configuration file

       If the environment variable BROWSER is set to a browser command, or a colon-delimited list
       of commands to try, then the specified browser is used. %s is replaced with the quoted url
       to view. If %s is not part of a command, the url is appended to the command.

       The  BROWSER  environment variable is honored only if the rc-file doesn't contain the COM-
       MAND option.  The rc-file provided by the Debian package contains a COMMAND option.
