Hi Folks,

Module os provides a means of running shell commands, such as:

import os
os.system('dir .')

will execute command dir

I think a hyperlink should also be executed. I tried:

os.system('http://somedomain.com/foo.cgi?name=foo&passwd=bar')

but I got kicked out by the Python interpreter. I wonder somebody
knows the syntax of triggering a hyperlink? Thanks in advance!
