RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for urlview (redhat section 1)

urlview(1)				       General Commands Manual					   urlview(1)

NAME
urlview - URL extractor/launcher
SYNOPSIS
urlview filename [ filename ... ]
DESCRIPTION
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.
CONFIGURATION
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: (((https?|ftp|gopher)://|(mailto|file|news):)[^' <>"]+|(www|web|w3).[-a-z0-9.]+)[^' .,;<>":] COMMAND command If the specified command contains a %s, it will be subsituted with the URL that was requested, other- wise the URL is appended to the COMMAND string. The default COMMAND is: url_handler.sh %s 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 properly. (Note that this shouldn't happen with the default regular expression, which explicitly excludes single quotes.)
