NAME

       urlencode - convert strings to or from URL-encoded form

SYNOPSIS

       urlencode [-m|-d] string [string ...]

DESCRIPTION

       urlencode encodes strings according to RFC 1738.

       That  is,  characters  A-Z  a-z 0-9 . _ and - are passed through unmodified, but all other
       characters are represented as %HH, where HH  is  their  two-digit  upper-case  hexadecimal
       ASCII   representation.    For   example,   the   URL   http://www.gridpp.ac.uk/   becomes
       http%3A%2F%2Fwww.gridpp.ac.uk%2F

       urlencode converts each character in all  the  strings  given  on  the  command  line.  If
       multiple   strings  are  given,  they  are  concatenated  with  separating  spaces  before
       conversion.

OPTIONS

       -m     Instead of full conversion, do GridSite "mild URL encoding" in which A-Z a-z 0-9  .
              =  -  _ @ and / are passed through unmodified. This results in slightly more human-
              readable strings but the application must be prepared to  create  or  simulate  the
              directories implied by any slashes.

       -d     Do  URL-decoding  rather  than encoding, according to RFC 1738. %HH and %hh strings
              are converted  and  other  characters  are  passed  through  unmodified,  with  the
              exception that + is converted to space.

EXIT CODES

       0 is always returned.
