This package provides a simple method of popping up a list of URLs and allowing the selection and insertion of an URL into the previous buffer.
The URLs are stored in an external file as a list of cons cells, for example:
(( "The GNU Project" . "http://www.gnu.org/") ( "The FSF" . "http://www.fsf.org/"))
The name and location of the file is up to you, the default name used by the
handyurl is stored in
Note that this code then went on to inspire
quickurl.el, which then went
on to be part of GNU emacs itself.
