NAME

       URI::SmartURI - Subclassable and hostless URIs

VERSION

       Version 0.032

SYNOPSIS

           my $uri = URI::SmartURI->new(
               'http://host/foo/',
               { reference => 'http://host/bar/' }
           );

           my $hostless = $uri->hostless; # '/foo/'

           $hostless->absolute; # 'http://host/foo/'

           $uri->relative; # '../foo/'

DESCRIPTION

       This is a sort of "subclass" of URI using delegation with some extra methods, all the
       methods that work for URIs will work on these objects as well.

       It's similar in spirit to URI::WithBase.

       It's also completely safe to subclass for your own use.

CONSTRUCTORS

   URI::SmartURI->new($str, [$scheme|{reference => $ref, scheme => $scheme}])
       Takes a uri $str and an optional scheme or hashref with a reference uri (for computing
       relative/absolute URIs) and an optional scheme.

           my $uri = URI::SmartURI->new('http://dev.catalyst.perl.org/');

           my $uri = URI::SmartURI->new('/dev.catalyst.perl.org/new-wiki/', 'http');

           my $uri = URI::SmartURI->new(
               'http://search.cpan.org/~jrockway/Catalyst-Manual-5.701003/',
               { reference => 'http://search.cpan.org/' }
           );

       The object returned will be blessed into a scheme-specific subclass, based on the class of
       the underlying $uri->obj (URI object.) For example, URI::SmartURI::http, which derives
       from URI::SmartURI (or $uri->factory_class if you're subclassing.)

   URI::SmartURI->new_abs($str, $base_uri)
       Proxy for URI->new_abs

   URI::SmartURI->newlocal($filename, [$os])
       Proxy for URI::URL->newlocal

METHODS

   $uri->hostless
       Returns the URI with the scheme and host parts stripped.

   $uri->reference
       Accessor for the reference URI (for relative/absolute below.)

   $uri->relative
       Returns the URI relative to the reference URI.

   $uri->absolute
       Returns the absolute URI using the reference URI as base.

   ""
       stringification works, just like with URIs

   ==
       and == does as well

   $uri->eq($other_uri)
       Explicit equality check to another URI, can be used as URI::SmartURI::eq($uri1, $uri2) as
       well.

   $uri->obj
       Accessor for the URI object methods are delegated to.

   $uri->factory_class
       The class whose constructor was called to create the $uri object, usually URI::SmartURI or
       your own subclass. This is used to call class (rather than object) methods.

INTERNAL METHODS

       These are used internally by SmartURI, and are not interesting for general use, but may be
       useful for writing subclasses.

   $uri->_opts
       Returns a hashref of options for the $uri (reference and scheme.)

   $class->_resolve_uri_class($uri_class)
       Converts, eg., "URI::http" to "URI::SmartURI::http".

   $class->_make_uri_class($uri_class)
       Creates a new proxy class class for a URI class, with all exports and constructor intact,
       and returns its name, which is made using _resolve_uri_class (above).

   $class->_inflate_uris(\@rray, $opts)
       Inflate any URI objects in @rray into URI::SmartURI objects, all other members pass
       through unharmed. $opts is a hashref of options to include in the objects created.

   $class->_deflate_uris(@rray)
       Deflate any URI::SmartURI objects in @rray into the URI objects they are proxies for, all
       other members pass through unharmed.

MAGICAL IMPORT

       On import with the "-import_uri_mods" flag it loads all the URI .pms into your class
       namespace.

       This works:

           use URI::SmartURI '-import_uri_mods';
           use URI::SmartURI::WithBase;
           use URI::SmartURI::URL;

           my $url = URI::SmartURI::URL->new(...); # URI::URL proxy

       Even this works:

           use URI::SmartURI '-import_uri_mods';
           use URI::SmartURI::Escape qw(%escapes);

       It even works with a subclass of URI::SmartURI.

       I only wrote this functionality so that I could run the URI test suite without much
       modification, it has no real practical value.
