Dim address8 As Uri = New Uri("gopher://example.contoso.com/")
If address8.Scheme = Uri.UriSchemeGopher Then
  outputBlock.Text &= "Uri is Gopher protocol"
  outputBlock.Text &= vbCrLf
End If
Uri address8 = new Uri("gopher://example.contoso.com/");
if (address8.Scheme == Uri.UriSchemeGopher)
    outputBlock.Text += "Uri is Gopher protocol\n"; 
Uri address6 = new Uri("gopher://example.contoso.com/");
