10 QuickURL: Inserting URLs Based on Text at Point

M-x quickurl can be used to insert a URL into a buffer based on the text at point. The URLs are stored in an external file defined by the variable quickurl-url-file as a list of either cons cells of the form (key . URL) or lists of the form (key URL comment). These specify that M-x quickurl should insert URL if the word key is at point, for example:

(("FSF"      "" "The Free Software Foundation")
 ("emacs"  . "")
 ("hagbard"  "" "Hagbard's World"))

M-x quickurl-add-url can be used to add a new key/URL pair. M-x quickurl-list provides interactive editing of the URL list.
