NAME

IRI - Internationalized Resource Identifiers

VERSION

This document describes IRI version 0.008

SYNOPSIS

  use IRI;
  
  my $i = IRI->new(value => 'https://example.org:80/index#frag');
  say $i->scheme; # 'https'
  say $i->path; # '/index'

  my $base = IRI->new(value => "http://www.hestebedg\x{e5}rd.dk/");
  my $i = IRI->new(value => '#frag', base => $base);
  say $i->abs; # 'http://www.hestebedgård.dk/#frag'

  # Defer parsing of the IRI until necessary
  my $i = IRI->new(value => "http://www.hestebedg\x{e5}rd.dk/", lazy => 1);
  say $i->path; # path is parsed here

DESCRIPTION

The IRI module provides an object representation for Internationalized Resource Identifiers (IRIs) as defined by RFC 3987 and supports their parsing, serializing, and base resolution.

ATTRIBUTES

lazy

A boolean value indicating whether the IRI should be parsed (and validated) during object construction (false), or parsed only when an IRI component is accessed (true). If no components are ever needed (e.g. an IRI is constructed with a value and value is the only accessor ever called), no parsing will take place.

METHODS

as_string

Returns the absolute IRI string resolved against the base IRI, if present; the relative IRI string otherwise.

abs

Returns the absolute IRI string (resolved against the base IRI if present).

scheme
host
port
user
path
fragment
query

Returns the respective component of the parsed IRI.

query_form

Returns a HASH of key-value mappings for the unencoded, parsed query form data.

set_query_param ( $key => $value )

sets the respective query form value and returns a new IRI object.
