Select URLs in PuTTY

It annoyed me for ages that you cannot just double-click on an URL in Putty to open that URL in your browser. Even selecting an URL for copy/paste is cumbersome.

Yesterday I found the next best thing: Select URLs in PuTTY

In essence you tell putty which characters form "words" and which are stop-characters. More here.

So on the "Window > Selection > Copy" tab, if you add :?= and some other URL characters to class 2, can at least can double click on an URL to select the full URL.

Don't forget to save those settings to your configuration(s).
