The functions optionaly exported by Browser::Open allows you to open URLs in the user browser. A set of known commands per OS-name is tested for presence, and the first one found is executed. With an optional parameter, all known commands are checked. The "open_browser" uses the system() function to execute the command. If you want more control, you can get the command with the "open_browser_cmd" or "open_browser_cmd_all" functions and then use whatever method you want to execute it.
