Add links to a text (take II)

If you missed the entry about Add links to text with URLs I suggest you read that first. This script has now been improved with bug fixes thanks to David Otton and Flump Cakes.

Download: addhrefs-0.4.tgz
It does not come with a nice installer because I don't think it belongs to the generic Python library anyway. If you want to use it, copy the file addhrefs.py to somewhere useful.

This is how it works:

>>> from addhrefs import addhrefs
>>> t='''Hello www.peterbe.com
and peterbe.com go to http://user:pass@google.ca
send to mail@email.com 
or <here@there.com>'''
>>> print addhrefs(t)
Hello <a href="https://www.peterbe.com">www.peterbe.com</a>
and peterbe.com go to <a  href="http://user:pass@google.ca">http://user:pass@google.ca</a>
send to <a href="mailto:mail@email.com">mail@email.com</a> 
or <<a  href="mailto:here@there.com">here@there.com</a>>

The example might be confusing since the Python code highlighter tries to do what addhrefs does.

UPDATE: Link to addhrefs-0.4.tgz didn't work before. Now it does.
