NAME

Badger::Codec::URL - URL encode/decode

SYNOPSIS

    use Badger::Codec::URL;
    my $codec   = Badger::Codec::URL->new();
    my $encoded = $codec->encode("Hello World!");
    my $decoded = $codec->decode($encoded);

DESCRIPTION

This module implements a subclass of Badger::Codec for URL encoding and decoding. Note the difference between URI and URL. URI encoding is strict and encodes characters like ;, ? and /. The URL codec is more lax and does not encode these characters.

The URI codec should be used for encoding URL parameters. The URL codec can be used to encode complete URLs.
