This is a Perl script that extracts URLs from correctly-encoded MIME
email messages or plain text. This can be used either as a
pre-parser for urlview, or to replace urlview entirely.
This is designed primarily for use with the mutt emailer. The idea
is that if you want to access a URL in an email, you pipe the email
to a URL extractor (like this one) which then lets you select a URL
to view in some third program (such as Firefox). An alternative
design is to access URLs from within mutt's pager by defining macros
and tagging the URLs in the display to indicate which macro to use.
A script you can use to do that is tagurl.pl.
Main features:
- Configurable
- Handles URLs that have been broken over several lines in
format=flowed delsp=yes email messages
- Handles quoted-printable email messages
- Sanitizes URLs so that they can't break out of the command shell
