Version number: 3.4
License type: lppl

Summary description: The command \url is a form of verbatim
        command that allows linebreaks at certain characters or
        combinations of characters, accepts reconfiguration, and
        can usually be used in the argument to another command.
        (The \urldef command provides robust commands that serve
        in cases when \url doesn't work in an argument.)  The
        command is intended for email addresses, hypertext
        links, directories/paths, etc., which normally have no
        spaces, so by default the package ignores spaces in its
        argument.  However, a package option “allows spaces”,
        which is useful for operating systems where spaces are a
        common part of file names.
