NAME

       http_uri - URI utility module

DESCRIPTION

       This module provides utility functions for working with URIs, according to RFC 3986.

DATA TYPES

       Type definitions that are used more than once in this module:

       boolean() = true | false

       string() = list of ASCII characters

URI DATA TYPES

       Type definitions that are related to URI:

         uri() = string() | binary():
           Syntax    according    to   the   URI   definition   in   RFC   3986,   for   example,
           "http://www.erlang.org/"

         user_info() = string() | binary():

         scheme() = atom():
           Example: http, https

         host() = string() | binary():

         port() = inet:port_number():

         path() = string() | binary():
           Represents a file path or directory path

         query() = string() | binary():

         fragment() = string() | binary():

       For more information about URI, see RFC 3986.

EXPORTS

       decode(HexEncodedURI) -> URI

              Types:

                 HexEncodedURI = string() | binary() - A possibly hexadecimal encoded URI
                 URI = uri()

              Decodes a possibly hexadecimal encoded URI.

       encode(URI) -> HexEncodedURI

              Types:

                 URI = uri()
                 HexEncodedURI = string() | binary() - Hexadecimal encoded URI

              Encodes a hexadecimal encoded URI.

       parse(URI) -> {ok, Result} | {error, Reason}
       parse(URI, Options) -> {ok, Result} | {error, Reason}

              Types:

                 URI = uri()
                 Options = [Option]
                 Option    =    {ipv6_host_with_brackets,    boolean()}    |    {scheme_defaults,
                 scheme_defaults()} | {fragment, boolean()} | {scheme_validation_fun, fun()}
                 Result  = {Scheme, UserInfo, Host, Port, Path, Query} | {Scheme, UserInfo, Host,
                 Port, Path, Query, Fragment}
                 Scheme = scheme()
                 UserInfo = user_info()
                 Host = host()
                 Port = inet:port_number()
                 Path = path()
                 Query = query()
                 Fragment = fragment()
                 Reason = term()

              Parses a URI. If no scheme defaults are provided, the value of the  scheme_defaults
              function is used.

              When  parsing  a  URI  with  an  unknown scheme (that is, a scheme not found in the
              scheme defaults), a port number must be provided, otherwise the parsing fails.

              If the fragment option is true, the URI fragment is returned as part of the parsing
              result, otherwise it is ignored.

              Scheme validation fun is to be defined as follows:

              fun(SchemeStr :: string() | binary()) ->
                   valid |   {error, Reason :: term()}.

              It is called before scheme string gets converted into scheme atom and thus possible
              atom leak could be prevented

          Warning:
              The scheme portion of the URI gets converted into atom, meaning that atom leak  may
              occur.  Specifying a scheme validation fun is recommended unless the URI is already
              sanitized.

       scheme_defaults() -> SchemeDefaults

              Types:

                 SchemeDefaults = [{scheme(), default_scheme_port_number()}]
                 default_scheme_port_number() = inet:port_number()

              Provides a list of the scheme and their default port numbers supported (by default)
              by this utility.
