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".
