Hi Shirrell,

I'm not sure what you mean by that.  Are you trying to interact with the
browser or simply start a browser with a URL from within a fortran program?
If the latter, you could do something like:

        character*200  URL


        call system('firefox, URL')


        call system('xdg-open, URL')

if you're expecting the user's system to have xdg-utils
(http://portland.freedesktop.org/) installed. I'm not sure though if you can
use a program variable within the system call...
