( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

Launching Mozilla from this chatterbox client is easy. Unless you are using Win32 you will want to comment out that portion of the code and add something like the following:

my $pid; if (!defined($pid = fork)) { warn "cannot fork: $!"; return; } elsif ($pid) { warn "begat $pid"; return; # Iím the parent } exec 'mozilla', "$url";

This patch will launch the buttonpress event in Mozilla. Each press will launch a new browser with a separate process ID. Works for me!

Update I wanted each buttonpress to open the link in a new tab. This is done with a simple modification to the exec:

exec "mozilla -remote \"openurl($url,new-tab)\"";
