NAME

       http_uri - URI utility module

DESCRIPTION

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

COMMON 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:

       For more information about URI, see RFC 3986.

       uri()       = string() - Syntax according to the URI definition in rfc 3986,
                                e.g.: "http://www.erlang.org/"
       user_info() = string()
       scheme()    = atom()   - Example: http, https
       host()      = string()
       port()      = pos_integer()
       path()      = string() - Representing a file path or directory path
       query()     = string()

EXPORTS

       scheme_defaults() -> SchemeDefaults

              Types:

                 SchemeDefaults = [{scheme(), default_scheme_port_number()}]
                 default_scheme_port_number() = pos_integer()

              This  function  provides  a  list  of  the  scheme  and  their default port numbers
              currently supported (by default) by this utility.

       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()}]
                 Result = {Scheme, UserInfo, Host, Port, Path, Query}
                 UserInfo = user_info()
                 Host = host()
                 Port = pos_integer()
                 Path = path()
                 Query = query()
                 Reason = term()

              This  function  is  used  to  parse an URI. If no scheme defaults are provided, the
              value of scheme_defaults function will be used.

              Note that when parsing an URI with an unknown scheme (that is, a scheme  not  found
              in  the  scheme  defaults)  a port number must be provided or else the parsing will
              fail.

       encode(URI) -> HexEncodedURI

              Types:

                 URI = uri()
                 HexEncodedURI = string() - Hex encoded uri

              Hex encode an URI.

       decode(HexEncodedURI) -> URI

              Types:

                 HexEncodedURI = string() - A possibly hex encoded uri
                 URI = uri()

              Decode a possibly hex encoded URI.
