NAME

Regexp::Common::URI::http -- Returns a pattern for HTTP URIs.  

SYNOPSIS

    use Regexp::Common qw /URI/;

    while (<>) {
        /$RE{URI}{HTTP}/       and  print "Contains an HTTP URI.\n";
    }

 

DESCRIPTION

 

$RE{URI}{HTTP}{-scheme}

Provides a regex for an HTTP URI as defined by RFC 2396 (generic syntax) and RFC 2616 (HTTP).

If "-scheme => P" is specified the pattern P is used as the scheme. By default P is "qr/http/". "https" and "https?" are reasonable alternatives.

The syntax for an HTTP URI is:

    "http:" "//" host [ ":" port ] [ "/" path [ "?" query ]]

Under "{-keep}", the following are returned:

$1
The entire URI.
$2
The scheme.
$3
The host (name or address).
$4
The port (if any).
$5
The absolute path, including the query and leading slash.
$6
The absolute path, including the query, without the leading slash.
$7
The absolute path, without the query or leading slash.
$8
The query, without the question mark.
