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   /usr/lo-
       cal/etc/urlview/system.urlview.	 There	are two	configuration commands
       (order does not matter):

       REGEXP regexp
	      urlview uses a regular expression	to extract URLs	from the spec-
	      ified  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 COMMAND is:

	      /usr/local/etc/urlview/url_handler.sh

       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 hap-
       pen with	the default regular expression,	which explicitly excludes sin-
       gle quotes.)

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

       QUITONLAUNCH
	      Will cause urlview to quit after you launch a URL.

FILES
       /usr/local/etc/urlview/system.urlview
	      system-wide urlview configuration	file

       ~/.urlview
	      urlview configuration file

ENVIRONMENT
       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 COMMAND option.  The	rc-file	provided by the	Debian package
       contains	a COMMAND option.
