URI::URL - Uniform Resource Locators
$u1 = URI::URL->new($str, $base);
$u2 = $u1->abs;
This module is provided for backwards compatibility with modules that depend on the interface provided by the URI::URL class that used to be distributed with the libwww-perl library.
The following differences exist compared to the URI class interface:
The URI::URL module exports the url() function as an alternate constructor interface.
The constructor takes an optional $base argument. The URI::URL class is a subclass of URI::WithBase.
The URI::URL->newlocal class method is the same as URI::file->new_abs.
$url->full_path: same as ($uri->abs_path || "/")
$url->netloc: same as $uri->authority
$url->epath, $url->equery: same as $uri->path, $uri->query
$url->path and $url->query pass unescaped strings.
$url->path_components: same as $uri->path_segments (if you don't consider path segment parameters)
$url->params and $url->eparams methods
$url->base method. See URI::WithBase.
$url->abs and $url->rel have an optional $base argument. See URI::WithBase.
$url->frag: same as $uri->fragment
$url->keywords: same as $uri->query_keywords
$url->localpath and friends map to $uri->file.
$url->address and $url->encoded822addr: same as $uri->to for mailto URI
$url->groupart method for news URI
$url->article: same as $uri->message
