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 compatible
monitoring 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'"
