The LaTeX url package

Version: 3.x, 4.x, 5.x - Scientific WorkPlace & Scientific Word

The url package allows spacing and line breaks that result in intelligent printing of email addresses, hypertext links, and path or directory addresses. You must enter package commands in TeX fields. The address, link, path, or directory address specified in the command must not contain unbalanced braces. If it doesn't contain certain other characters (such as % or #) and doesn't end with a backslash, you can use the command in the argument to another command.

How to implement intelligent printing of hypertext links and electronic addresses

  1. Add the url package to your document and set the options as necessary.
  2. Place the insertion point where you want the link or address to appear.
  3. Enter an encapsulated TeX field.
  4. In the entry area, type \url{address} where address is the address or link to be printed.
  5. Choose OK.

In addition to package commands, the package options control spacing and line breaks. The package installs in the TCITeX/TeX/LaTeX/contrib/misc directory.
