    This plugin wraps the text output of another command (plugin)
    in HTML <A> tags, thus displaying the child plugin's output as a clickable link in
    the Nagios status screen.  This plugin returns the status of the invoked plugin.

    urlize <url> <plugin> <arg1> ... <argN>

     -h, --help
        Print detailed help screen
     -V, --version
        Print version information

    Pay close attention to quoting to ensure that the shell passes the expected
    data to the plugin. For example, in:

     urlize check_http -H -r 'two words'

        the shell will remove the single quotes and urlize will see:
     urlize check_http -H -r two words

        You probably want:

     urlize "check_http -H -r 'two words'"
