[Tex/LaTex] How to add a URL to a LaTeX bibtex file

bibtexurls

I'm using bibtex for my bibliography in LaTeX. I have some URL's I need to cite in the paper. How do I add URLs into the .bib file?

A typical section in my .bib file looks like this:

@conference{eigenfacepaper,
  title={{Face recognition using eigenfaces}},
  author={Turk, M. and Pentland, A.},
  booktitle={Proc. IEEE Conf. on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition},
  volume={591},
  year={1991}
}

I tried some misc sections in bibtex but they don't show up in my document.

The last time I cited a URL, I used a BibTeX entry of the following form:

@misc{bworld,
  author = {Ingo L├╝tkebohle},
  title = {{BWorld Robot Control Software}},
  howpublished = "\url{http://aiweb.techfak.uni-bielefeld.de/content/bworld-robot-control-software/}",
  year = {2008}, 
  note = "[Online; accessed 19-July-2008]"
}

If that does not show up, then it might indeed be a problem with your BibTeX style (or you forgot to \usepackage{url} or \usepackage{hyperref} in your main .tex file).
