in reply to Shortcut file

Is this Perl??
are you sure you posted inside the right WebSite??
anyway... it is really a text file that contains this:
[DEFAULT] BASEURL= [InternetShortcut] URL= IconIndex=4 IconFile=C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\url.dll
try it.

    You'll also want to make sure the user saves it with a .url extension. This will also only work on IE, I think.

    I would do this to supply a default filename:
    my $filename = 'internetshortcut.url'; print "Content-disposition: filename=$filename\n"; print "Content-Type: text/plain\n\n"; # print the content of the URL file.
    The user will be prompted to save the file with the supplied default filename.
