lua-uri-http - HTTP URI support for Lua URI library
The classes "uri.http" and "uri.https" are used for URIs with the "http" and "https" schemes respectively. "uri.http" inherits from the generic uri class, and "uri.https" inherits from "uri.http". An HTTP or HTTPS URI containing any userinfo part is considered to be invalid. An empty path is normalized to '/', since browsers usually do that, and an empty path cannot be used in an HTTP GET request. The default port for the "http" scheme is 80, and for "https" is 443. There are no extra methods defined for telnet URIs, only those described in lua-uri(3).
As far as I can tell there is no up to date specification of the syntax of HTTP URIs, so this class is based on "RFC 1738 section 3.3" and "RFC 2616 section 3.2.2".
