Intro

Usage

  • options – Options are passed in as a hash,
    • :remove_anchors – removes any anchor tags (false)
    • :force_escaping – forces escaping of urls if it hasn’t been done already (true)
    • :output_debug – puts debug info while processing the url (false)
    • :raise_exceptions – raises exceptions when it can’t parse a url, otherwise returns passed in value (false)

absolutizer = Absolutize.new(“http://www.vamosa.com/mainfolder/”, :remove_anchors => true)

url(rel_url)
