NAME

URI::Encode::XS - a Perl URI encoder/decoder using C

SYNOPSIS

  use URI::Encode::XS qw/uri_encode uri_decode/;

  my $encoded = uri_encode($data);
  my $decoded = uri_decode($encoded);

DESCRIPTION

This is a Perl URI encoder/decoder written in XS based on RFC3986. This module always encodes characters that are not unreserved. When decoding, invalid escape sequences are preserved, e.g:

  uri_decode("foo%20bar%a/"); # foo bar%a/
  uri_decode("foo%20bar%a");  # foo bar%a
  uri_decode("foo%20bar%");   # foo bar%

As of version 0.09, the bench script shows it to be significantly faster than URI::Escape:

              Rate escape encode
  escape  144165/s     --   -98%
  encode 8239785/s  5616%     --
                Rate unescape   decode
  unescape  196870/s       --     -97%
  decode   6051468/s    2974%       --

However this is just one string - the fewer encoded/decoded characters are in the string, the closer the benchmark is likely to be (see bench for details of the benchmark). Different hardware will yield different results.

Another fast encoder/decoder which supports custom escape lists, is URI::XSEscape.
