If a custom URL is provided (e.g. here by previously overriding the $exporter->{handover_types}->{UCSClink}->{url} value), this value will replace the handover url value. Alternatively, a URL provided as script_path_web parameter will be prefixed to the query. If it contains a full address (i.e. “http”) it will replace the canonical script root (e.g. here used for sending an action to the UI instead of the cgi entry point).



The function creates a basic BED file and returns its local path. A standard use would be to create a link to this file and submit it as hgt.customText parameter to the UCSC browser.
