       urlscan - browse the URLs in an email message from a terminal


       urlscan [options] < message

       urlscan [options] message


       urlscan  accepts  a single email message on standard input, then displays a terminal-based
       list of the URLs in the given message.  Selecting a URL uses the Python webbrowser  module
       to determine which browser to open. The BROWSER environment variable will be used if it is

       urlscan is primarily intended to be used with the mutt (1) mailreader, but it should  work
       well with any terminal-based mail program.

       urlscan is similar to urlview(1), but has the following additional features:

       1. Support for more message encodings, such as quoted-printable and base64.

       2. Extraction and display of the context surrounding each URL.


       -c, --compact
              Display a simple list of the extracted URLs, instead of showing the context of each

       -n, --no-browser
              Disables the selection interface and print the links to  standard  output.   Useful
              for scripting (implies --compact).


       To integrate urlscan with mutt, include the following two commands in ~/.muttrc:

       macro index,pager \cb "<pipe-message> urlscan<Enter>" "call urlscan to extract URLs out of
       a message"

       macro attach,compose \cb "<pipe-entry> urlscan<Enter>" "call urlscan to extract URLs out
       of a message"

       Once these lines are in your mutt configuration file, pressing Control-b will allow you to
       browse and open the URLs in the currently selected message.
