Many thanks for your reply, Aditya.

Your approach is really interesting, but I don’t know how to mix it with
the first run mode.

  io.write("\n\n Document URL?    ")
  document.url_address = io.read()



How could I make this sample or a similar approach work?

What I need it to avoid entering the same address more than once.

Many thanks for your help,
