URI::Split - Parse and compose URI strings
use URI::Split qw(uri_split uri_join);
($scheme, $auth, $path, $query, $frag) = uri_split($uri);
$uri = uri_join($scheme, $auth, $path, $query, $frag);
Provides functions to parse and compose URI
strings. The following functions are provided:
- ($scheme, $auth, $path, $query, $frag) = uri_split($uri)
Breaks up a URI string into its component
parts. An "undef" value is returned for those parts that are not
present. The $path part is always present (but can be the empty
string) and is thus never returned as "undef".
No sensible value is returned if this function is called in a scalar
- $uri = uri_join($scheme, $auth, $path, $query, $frag)
Puts together a URI string from its parts.
Missing parts are signaled by passing "undef" for the corresponding
Minimal escaping is applied to parts that contain reserved chars
that would confuse a parser. For instance, any occurrence of '?' or '#'
in $path is always escaped, as it would otherwise be parsed back
as a query or fragment.
