|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:
|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 shouldnt happen with the default regular expression, which explicitly excludes single quotes.)|
|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.|
|Will cause urlview to quit after you launch a URL.|
/usr/local/etc/urlview/system.urlview system-wide urlview configuration file ~/.urlview urlview configuration file
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 doesnt contain the COMMAND option. The rc-file provided by the Debian package contains a COMMAND option.
