Browser::Open(3)	       User Contributed Perl Documentation		 Browser::Open(3)

NAME
       Browser::Open - open a browser in a given URL

VERSION
       version 0.03

SYNOPSIS
	   use Browser::Open qw( open_browser );

	   ### Try commands specific to the current Operating System
	   my $ok = open_browser($url);
	   # ! defined($ok): no recognized command found
	   # $ok == 0: command found and executed
	   # $ok != 0: command found, error while executing

	   ### Try all known commands
	   my $ok = open_browser($url, 1);

DESCRIPTION
       The functions optionaly exported by this module allows you to open URLs in the user
       browser.

       A set of known commands per OS-name is tested for presence, and the first one found is
       executed. With an optional parameter, all known commands are checked.

       The "open_browser" uses the "system()" function to execute the command. If you want more
       control, you can get the command with the "open_browser_cmd" or "open_browser_cmd_all"
       functions and then use whatever method you want to execute it.

API
       All functions are not exported by default. You must ask for them explicitly.

   open_browser
	   my $ok = open_browser($url, $all);

       Find an appropriate command and executes it with your $url. If $all is false, the default,
       only commands that match the current OS will be tested. If true, all known commands will
       be tested.

       If no command was found, returns "undef".

       If a command is found, returns the exit code of the execution attempt, 0 for success. See
       the "system()" for more information about this exit code.

       If no $url is given, an exception will be thrown: "Missing required parameter $url".

   open_browser_cmd
	   my $cmd = open_browser_cmd();

       Returns the best command found to open a URL on your system.

       If no command was found, returns "undef".

   open_browser_cmd_all
	   my $cmd = open_browser_cmd_all();

       Returns the first command found to open a URL.

       If no command was found, returns "undef".
