does exist a command in linux which starts always the right application depending on the doc-type (something like the start-command under windows)?


start abc.txt => open an editor with the text
start http://www.abc.com => open a browser with the url
start mailto:xyz@abc.com => open an email-client with the mailaddress


I don't know something about that, but I think it schouldn't be much work to write a script (in bash?) that looks on the doc-type and executes the dependig programm.
 The question is, for what do you need something like that?

that was not the question!

does exist any competent answer?
