<H2>DESCRIPTION</H2><PRE>
       This  module  allows you to launch a URL or a file on the Mac using the
       system's default application for that URL or  file  type.  It  provides
       similar  functionality  to  the  "/usr/bin/open" command-line tool, but
       works without shelling out to an external  program.  The  package  also
       allows  you  to query the system for a default app for a particular URL
       type, i.e. http://, and also to set the default app  for  a  particular
       URL.  Finally,  the  module  provides a convenience function to get the
       current app path.
