           uri - URI utilities


           package require Tcl  8.2
           package require uri  ?1.2.2?
           uri::split url ?defaultscheme?
           uri::join ?key value?...
           uri::resolve base url
           uri::isrelative url
           uri::geturl url ?options...?
           uri::canonicalize uri
           uri::register schemeList script




           This  package contains two parts. First it provides regular expressions
           for a number of url/uri schemes. Second it provides a  number  of  com-
           mands  for  manipulating urls/uris and fetching data specified by them.
           For the latter this package analyses the  requested  url/uri  and  then
           dispatches  it  to  the appropriate package (http, ftp, ...) for actual
           The package currently does not conform to RFC 2396 (http://www.rfc-edi-
 , but quite likely should be. Patches and other
           help are welcome.


           uri::split url ?defaultscheme?
                  uri::split takes an url, decodes it and then returns a  list  of
                  key/value  pairs  suitable  for  array  set  containing the con-
                  stituents of the url. If the scheme is missing from the  url  it
                  defaults  to  the value of defaultscheme if it was specified, or
                  http else. Currently only the schemes http,  ftp,  mailto,  urn,
                  news,  ldap  and  file are supported by the package itself.  See
                  section EXTENDING on how to expand that range.
                  The set of constituents of an url (= the  set  of  keys  in  the
                  returned  dictionary) is dependent on the scheme of the url. The
                  only key which is therefore always present is  scheme.  For  the
                  following schemes the constituents and their keys are known:
                  ftp    user, pwd, host, port, path, type
                  resent. Currently only the schemes http, ftp, mailto, urn, news,
                  ldap  and  file  are  supported. See section EXTENDING on how to
                  expand that range.
           uri::resolve base url
                  uri::resolve resolves the specified url  relative  to  base.  In
                  other  words:  A non-relative url is returned unchanged, whereas
                  for a relative url the missing parts are  taken  from  base  and
                  prepended  to  it. The result of this operation is returned. For
                  an empty url the result is base.
           uri::isrelative url
                  uri::isrelative determines whether the specified url is absolute
                  or relative.
           uri::geturl url ?options...?
                  uri::geturl  decodes  the  specified url and then dispatches the
                  request to the package appropriate for the scheme found  in  the
                  url.  The  command  assumes that the package to handle the given
                  scheme either has the same name as the scheme itself  (including
                  possible  capitalization)  followed  by ::geturl, or, in case of
                  this failing, has the same name as the scheme itself  (including
                  possible capitalization). It further assumes that whatever pack-
                  age was loaded provides a geturl-command in the namespace of the
                  same name as the package itself. This command is called with the
                  given url and all given options. Currently geturl does not  han-
                  dle any options itself.
                  Note:  file-urls  are  an exception to the rule described above.
                  They are handled internally.
                  It is not possible to  specify  results  of  the  command.  They
                  depend on the geturl-command for the scheme the request was dis-
                  patched to.
           uri::canonicalize uri
                  uri::canonicalize returns the canonical  form  of  a  URI.   The
                  canonical  form  of  a URI is one where relative path specifica-
                  tions, ie. . and .., have been resolved.
           uri::register schemeList script
                  uri::register registers the first element of schemeList as a new
                  scheme and the remaining elements as aliases for this scheme. It
                  creates the namespace for the scheme and executes the script  in
                  the  new namespace. The script has to declare variables contain-
                  ing the regular expressions relevant to the scheme. At least the
                  variable  schemepart  has  to be declared as that one is used to
                  extend the variables keeping track of the registered schemes.


           In addition to the commands mentioned above this package provides regu-
           easy because both commands do not handle the request by themselves  but
           dispatch it to another command in the uri namespace using the scheme of
           the url as criterion.
           uri::split  and  uri::join  call  Split[string  totitle  <scheme>]  and
           Join[string totitle <scheme>] respectively.

           This document, and the package it describes, will  undoubtedly  contain
           bugs and other problems.  Please report such in the category uri of the
           Tcllib  SF  Trackers  [].
           Please  also  report any ideas for enhancements you may have for either
           package and/or documentation.
