gnome-terminal incorrect URL highlighting
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:58 EDT
gnome-terminal highlight an URL (shown in the terminal as underlined text).
The problem is that it does not do this correctly
in case URL has % symbol in it.
If you type in prompt
and move mouse to this line the entire URL will be highlighted
but if you type
the symbols after % are just ignored, what is incorrect.
% is a standard way to encode symbols in URL.
Another thing, the URL is shown as it possible to click on it,
but if I click nothing happens.
Should a web browser be started?
Probably we just need to add % to the regular expression used to parse URLs in
gnome-terminal.c. You should be able to right-click on a URL to open it.
A plain rightclick doesn't always work, but ctrl+rightclick does.
This has since been fixed.
