Hello

I'm trying to use urllib to download web pages with the GET method,
but Python 2.5.1 on Windows turns the URL into something funny:

========
url = "amazon.fr/search/index.php?url=search"

[...]

IOError: [Errno 2] The system cannot find the path specified:
'amazon.fr\\search\\index.php?url=search'

f = urllib.urlopen(url)
========		

Any idea why it does this?

Thank you.
