--- WHAT IS UTL.VIM?

It brings the benefits of URL-based hyperlinking to plain text, extending the
URL syntax for plain text needs, in accordance with the RFC 2396 (towards
current RFC 3986) URL specification.

Utl is very easy to start. Just  :so %  the .vba file and dive into the live examples
of the doc.

  .jpg etc without the need to define handler variables.

  executable.

  <mail:///Inbox?26.07.2008 16:01>
