Nope. PyCharm outputs text to the console that the console chooses to
interpret as a link and makes clickable. As Stephen pointed out right
back at the beginning of this thread, printing the textual string that
is a URL could do exactly the same thing *if* the console you print to
chooses to interpret it as such. The choice is with the console, not
your program; that there is the incorrect assumption.
