From what I see you can request anything but the root of a site. If you try to test url like http://example.com/test.html you get this error "bees: error: It appears your URL lacks a trailing slash, this will disorient the bees. Please try again with a trailing slash."
Apache bench works fine for testing files.
I'd like to see this changed as well
I commented it out, like so: #31
To clarify, ab requires a trailing slash for URLs without a path component, such as http://example.com. The current check does not discriminate and forces a trailing slash on all URLs, which is clearly not ideal. Instead of tuning the regex I would like to actually parse the supplied URL, and if necessary add a trailing slash for bare URLs rather than forcing this particular implementation detail upon the user.
urls only need to end with a trailing slash if there is no path compo…
…nent. close #30
