urlview - Unix, Linux Command
urlview - URL extractor/launcher
urlview filename [ filename ... ]
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.
urlview attempts to read ~/.urlview upon startup. If this file doesnt exist, it will try to read a system wide file in /etc/urlview.conf. There are two configuration commands (order does not matter):
|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:|
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:
|/etc/urlview.conf||system-wide urlview configuration file|
|~/.urlview||urlview configuration file|
