I have a problen with a long url on LaTeX, I want to break it but I don't know how.

The line in LaTeX is:

\bibitem{} Information Intel 8085: \\ \url{http://www.ehowenespanol.com/informacion-microprocesador-intel-8085-sobre\_138668/} 

When I compile, I can see in PDF the following url:


Can I make some kind of \breakline or \ in the url?

    First of all replace \_ by _, \url will escape it automatically. Secondly remember that there are rules as to how one can break URLs. In this case it can only be broken at /, . and _

    Have you tried loading the url package with the hyphens option set? Doing so instructs LaTeX that it's permissible to break a long URL string at a hyphen.

Finally, I solved this problem. I only used \nolinkurl:


\href{http://www.ehowenespanol.com/informacion-microprocesador-intel-8085-sobre\_138668/}{\nolinkurl{http://www.ehowenespanol.com/} \\ \nolinkurl{informacion-microprocesador-intel-8085-sobre\_138668/}}

Thanks to @daleif, @Andrew Swann, @Mico for read my post
