Description

• 

The URL package is a collection of commands for getting and posting data via urls.  The URL package supports the http, https and ftp url schemes.

• 

On Linux, https support requires an SSL-enabled libcurl package be installed.  The default libcurl package for most distributions should suffice. Windows and OS X have SSL support available by default.

• 

The URL package is a generalization of the HTTP package.  The HTTP package is implemented on top of the URL package.

• 

For more information on the URL format, see Construct.

Accessing URL Package Commands

• 

Each command in the URL package can be accessed by using either the long form or the short form of the command name in the command calling sequence.

• 

Because the underlying implementation of the URL package is a module, it is possible to use the form URL:-command to access a command from the package. For more information, see Module Members.
