The www/p5-URI port
p5-URI-5.17 – library to parse Uniform Resource Identifiers
This package contains the URI.pm module with friends. The module
implements the URI class. Objects of this class represent Uniform
Resource Identifier (URI) references as specified in RFC 2396.
URI objects can be used to access and manipulate the various
components that make up these strings. There are also methods to
combine URIs in various ways.
The URI class replaces the URI::URL class that used to be distributed
with libwww-perl. This package contains an emulation of the old
URI::URL interface. The emulated URI::URL implements both the old
and the new interface.
