Browser::Open Build Status Build status

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


To install it using Panda (a module management tool bundled with Rakudo Star):

$ panda update
$ panda install Browser::Open


use Browser::Open;

my $ok = open_browser($url);


The functions optionally exported by this module allows you to open URLs in the user browser.

A set of known commands per OS-name is tested for presence, and the first one found is executed. With an optional parameter, all known commands are checked.


To run tests:

$ prove -e "perl6 -Ilib"
