URL as input -> "IOError: [Errno 2] The system cannot find the path specified"


I'm trying to use urllib to download web pages with the GET method,
but Python 2.5.1 on Windows turns the URL into something funny:

url = "amazon.fr/search/index.php?url=s earch"


IOError: [Errno 2] The system cannot find the path specified:
'amazon.fr\\sea rch\\index.php? url=search'

f = urllib.urlopen( url)

Any idea why it does this?

Thank you.

This "URL" lacks the protocol! Correct would be http://amazon.fr… (I

IOError: [Errno 2] The system cannot find the path specified:
'amazon.fr\\sea rch\\index.php? url=search'
Without protocol it seems that the 'file://' protocol is used and there
is no such file on your system.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
