    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.
