Browser::Open Build Status Build status

This is a humble Perl 6 port of Perl's Browser::Open.


To install it using zef, the Perl 6 module manager :

$ zef install Browser::Open


use Browser::Open;

my $ok = open-browser($url);


This module allow you to open URLs in a browser. A set of known browser commands per OS-name is tested for presence, and the first one found is executed. With an optional parameter, all known commands are checked.
