NAME
       web, wmail - handle web page, mail message for plumber

SYNOPSIS
       web url ...
       wmail address

DESCRIPTION
       Web  opens  each	of the named urls in a new web browser window.	Any of
       the urls	may be relative	paths to files in the file system;  they  will
       be translated into file:// URLs before being passed to the web browser.

       Web  uses  the  web browser's -remote option command-line option, which
       requires	an instance of the web browser to  be  already	running.   The
       choice  of  browser is determined by the	$BROWSER environment variable,
       which should be the name	of the	executable  for	 your  choice  of  web
       browser.	  The  default is firefox.  Since the various browsers all use
       different syntaxes in their -remote options, the	executable name	is in-
       spected	to  determine the type of browser.  The	supported browsers are
       Opera, Mozilla Firefox, Mozilla Firebird, and Mozilla.  When  possible,
       web opens each URL in a new tab rather than a new window.

       When  run  under	Mac OS X, $BROWSER should be set to camino , firefox ,
       or safari.  Web uses AppleScript	to talk	to the browser.	  If  $BROWSER
       is not set, web looks for Firefox in /Applications/Firefox.app and uses
       it if found; otherwise it uses Safari.

       Wmail starts the	composition of a new mail message to address.

       The choice of mailer is determined by the $MAILER environment variable.
       The supported mailers are:

       browser
	      invoke the mailer	via a mailto://	URL passed to web

       Web  and	 wmail are invoked as start commands in	the plumber(4)'s rules
       for opening web pages and writing mail messages.
