URI::Escape::XS - Drop-In replacement for URI::Escape

Does what JavaScript's encodeURIComponent does.
$uri = encodeURIComponent("http://www.example.com/");
# http%3A%2F%2Fwww.example.com%2F
Note you cannot customize characters to escape. If you need to do so,
use "uri_escape".
Does what JavaScript's decodeURIComponent does.
$str = decodeURIComponent("http%3A%2F%2Fwww.example.com%2F");
# http://www.example.com/
It decode not only %HH sequences but also %uHHHH sequences, with
surrogate pairs correctly decoded.
$str = decodeURIComponent("%uD869%uDEB2%u5F3E%u0061");
# \x{2A6B2}\x{5F3E}a
This function UNCONDITIONALLY returns the decoded string with utf8 flag
off. To get utf8-decoded string, use Encode and
This is the correct behavior because you cannot tell if the decoded
string actually contains UTF-8 decoded string, like ISO-8859-1 and
Same as "encodeURIComponent" except that the host part is encoded in
punycode. Either Net::LibIDN or Net::IDN::Encode is required to use this
URIs with Internationalizing Domain Names require two encodings:
Punycode for host part and URI escape for the rest.
Currently only FULL URIs with "http:" or "https:" are supported.
Same as "decodeURIComponent" except that the host part is encoded in
punycode. Either Net::LibIDN or Net::IDN::Encode is required to use this
Does exactly the same as URI::Escape::uri_escape() except when
utf8-flagged string is fed.
URI::Escape::uri_escape() croak and urge you to "uri_escape_utf8()" but
it is pointless because URI itself has no such things as utf8 flag. The
function in this module ALWAYS TREATS the string as byte sequence. That
way you can safely use this function without worring about utf8 flags.
Note this function is NOT EXPORTED by default. That way you can use
URI::Escape and URI::Escape::XS simultaneously.
Does exactly the same as URI::Escape::uri_escape() except when %uHHHH is
URI::Escape::uri_unescape() simply ignores %uHHHH sequences while the
function in this module does decode it into the corresponding UTF-8 byte
Like uri_escape, this funciton is NOT EXPORTED by default.
Note on the %uHHHH sequence
With this module the resulting strings never have the utf8 flag on. So
if you want to decode it to perl utf8, You have to explicitly decode via
Encode. Remember. URIs have always been a byte sequence, not UTF-8
If the %uHHHH sequence became standard, you could have safely told if a
given URI is in Unicode. But more fortunately than unfortunately, the
RFC proposal was rejected so you cannot tell which encoding is used just
by looking at the URI.
I said fortunately because %uHHHH can be nasty for non-BMP characters.
Since each %uHHHH can hold one 16-bit value, you need a *surrogate pair*
to represent it if it is U+10000 and above.
In spite of that, there are a significant number of URIs with %uHHHH
escapes. Therefore this module supports decoding only.
Since this module uses XS, it is really fast except for
Regexp which is used in URI::Escape is really fast for non-matching but
slows down significantly when it has to replace string.
