Rewriting URLs

Until version 1.4 it was not possible to rewrite the URL-part of an object summary. It is now possible, but only by using the ``pipe'' instruction. This may be useful for people wanting to run a Gatherer on file:// URLs, but have them appear as http:// URLs. This can be done with a post-summarizing rule such as:

        url ~ 'file://localhost/web/htdocs/'
                url |

And the '' script might look like:

        #!/usr/local/bin/perl -p
