Description

Enables following a series of redirects (shortened urls)

Prerequisites

Tested on Ruby 1.9.3 & 2.0 (likely still works on 1.8.7, but you are on your own.)

Example Code

require 'unwind'

follower = Unwind::RedirectFollower.new('http://j.mp/xZVND1')
follower.resolve
assert_equal 'http://ow.ly/i/s1O0', follower.final_url 
assert_equal 'http://j.mp/xZVND1', follower.original_url
assert_equal 2, follower.redirects.count

Hat tip

Most of the code is based on John Nunemaker's blog post Following Redirects with Net/HTTP.
