Gnome/URL version 0.01 ====================== This module provides a Perl binding for url handling in the GNOME (1.x) environment (http://www.gnome.org). It can handle various types of URLs including http, https, ftp, file, info, man, ghelp, and possibly others. The commands used to view different types of URLs are determined by the user's gnome configuration (most likely stored in ~/.gnome/Gnome). See http://developer.gnome.org/doc/API/libgnome/gnome-gnome-url.html for more information.
