Re: Launch a url in my web browser?
Message ID:

My oversight, I forgot to say that this would be on my own local machine a 
Win 2k box

Since I am sometimes in a text editor that has ability to launch a perl 
file then: the handyness to get a url launched by using a perl script to do so

Thanks.  Alan.
