Overview of the URL Package

 Calling Sequence URL[command](arguments) command(arguments)

Description

 • The URL package is a collection of commands for getting and posting data via URLs. The URL package supports the http, https and ftp URL schemes.
 • On Linux, https support requires an SSL-enabled libcurl package be installed. The default libcurl package for most distributions should suffice. Windows and OS X have SSL support available by default.
 • The URL package is a generalization of the HTTP package. The HTTP package is implemented on top of the URL package.

Accessing URL Package Commands

 • Each command in the URL package can be accessed by using either the long form or the short form of the command name in the command calling sequence.
 • Because the underlying implementation of the URL package is a module, it is possible to use the form URL:-command to access a command from the package. For more information, see Module Members.
