!!! This is work in progress. Class names and interfaces will change. !!!This is an attempt to update and simplify the URI::URL classes basedon RFC 2396 "Uniform Resource Identifiers (URI): Generic Syntax"Some basic terminology has changed so it might make sense to make anew start with new class names. This also allows us to simplify theimplementation by getting rid of some methods since we don't reallyhave to be backwards compatible. The old modules can still be usedfor old code. The new draft also allows the parser implemented by asingle regular expression which should also help making it faster thanthe old modules.The main change proposed is to use 'URI' as the main class name. TheURI and URI::_generic class implement Uniform Resource Identifiersparsing and resolving of relative URIs as specified by RFC 2396.Main user visible changes from URI::URL are: * Don't export url() constructor function. URI->new is short enough. * No base() attribute, also means that abs() and rel() needs mandatory $base argument. * netloc --> authority * user/password --> userinfo * full_path --> abs_path_query * path_components --> path_segments. If a path segment has parameters then this segment is represented by an array reference. * frag --> fragment. The returned fragment is still escaped? * params() is gone. * All the epath/equery/eparam methods are gone. The corresponding method without e-prefix now returns escaped strings * crack is gone * newlocal is gone (or NYI) * print_on is gone * URI::URL::strict() is replaced by a global variable $URI::STRICTComments welcomed?
