[ eD2k-link ]
Adds an eD2k-link to the core.

The eD2k link to be added can be:

  • a file link (ed2k://|file|...), it will be added to the download queue;
  • a server link (ed2k://|server|...), it will be added to the server list;
  • a serverlist link, in which case all servers in the list will be added to the server list;
  • a magnet link.



For all options which take a <path> value, if the path contains no directory part (i.e. just a plain filename), then it is considered to be under the aMule configuration directory, ~/.aMule.
