       URI::Split - Parse and compose URI strings


        use URI::Split qw(uri_split uri_join);
        ($scheme, $auth, $path, $query, $frag) = uri_split($uri);
        $uri = uri_join($scheme, $auth, $path, $query, $frag);


       Provides functions to parse and compose URI strings.  The following functions are

       ($scheme, $auth, $path, $query, $frag) = uri_split($uri)
           Breaks up a URI string into its component parts.  An "undef" value is returned for
           those parts that are not present.  The $path part is always present (but can be the
           empty string) and is thus never returned as "undef".

           No sensible value is returned if this function is called in a scalar context.

       $uri = uri_join($scheme, $auth, $path, $query, $frag)
           Puts together a URI string from its parts.  Missing parts are signaled by passing
           "undef" for the corresponding argument.

           Minimal escaping is applied to parts that contain reserved chars that would confuse a
           parser.  For instance, any occurrence of '?' or '#' in $path is always escaped, as it
           would otherwise be parsed back as a query or fragment.
