Registered URLs and URL Compatible Applications

Registered URLs,0,000000M

Uniform Resource Locators (URL) describe resources available via the Internet. Full details are given in RFC 1738.

RFC 1738 describes the basic, standard URL schemes, and then various draft RFC are used to extend the list of standard schemes. Please don't invent new schemes - they won't work with other programs under RISCOS, and they won't work on other platforms.

gopher:// Gopher system
