    }

 

DESCRIPTION

Patterns for the following URIs are supported: fax, file, FTP, gopher, HTTP, news, NTTP, pop, prospero, tel, telnet, tv and WAIS. Each is documented in the Regexp::Common::URI::scheme, manual page, for the appropriate scheme (in lowercase), except for NNTP URIs which are found in Regexp::Common::URI::news.

 WAIS URIs

 Revision 2.105  2003/02/21 14:49:41  abigail
 Gopher added

 Revision 2.104  2003/02/11 14:10:25  abigail
 Changed 'nntp' to 'NNTP'

 Revision 2.103  2003/02/10 21:18:07  abigail
 Move most of the code into separate files. One file per URI, and
 one file per RFC.

 telnet URIs

 Revision 2.101  2003/02/01 22:55:31  abigail
 Changed Copyright years

 Revision 2.100  2003/01/21 23:19:40  abigail
 The whole world understands RCS/CVS version numbers, that 1.9 is an
 older version than 1.10. Except CPAN. Curse the idiot(s) who think
 that version numbers are floats (in which universe do floats have
 more than one decimal dot?).
 Everything is bumped to version 2.100 because CPAN couldn't deal
 with the fact one file had version 1.10.

 Revision 1.11  2003/01/21 22:59:33  abigail
 Fixed small errors with  and

 Revision 1.10  2003/01/17 13:17:15  abigail
 Fixed '$toplabel' and '$domainlabel'; they were both subexpressions
 of the form: A|AB. Which passed the tests because most tests anchor
 the regex at the beginning and end.

 Revision 1.9  2003/01/01 23:00:54  abigail

 Local phone numbers can have future extensions as well.

 Added FTP URIs.
