The Gopher URL scheme is used to designate Internet resources accessible using the Gopher protocol.

The base Gopher protocol is described in RFC 1436 and supports items and collections of items (directories). The Gopher+ protocol is a set of upward compatible extensions to the base Gopher protocol and is described in [2]. Gopher+ supports associating arbitrary sets of attributes and alternate data representations with Gopher items. Gopher URLs accommodate both Gopher and Gopher+ items and item attributes.
