Overview of the URL Package
Accessing URL Package Commands
List of URL Package Commands
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 macOS 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.
For more information on the URL format, see Construct.
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.
The long form, URL:-command, is always available. The short form can be used after loading the package.
The following is a list of commands available in the URL package.
