Public Class Methods

extract(str, schemes = nil, &block) click to toggle source

Synopsis

URI::extract(str[, schemes][,&blk])

Args

str

String to extract URIs from.

schemes

Limit URI matching to a specific schemes.

Description

Extracts URIs from a string. If block given, iterates through all matched URIs. Returns nil if block given or array with matches.

Usage

require "uri"

URI.extract("text here http://foo.example.org/bla and here mailto:test@example.com and here also.")
# => ["http://foo.example.com/bla", "mailto:test@example.com"]
 
               # File uri/common.rb, line 551
def self.extract(str, schemes = nil, &block)
  if block_given?
    str.scan(regexp(schemes)) { yield $& }
    nil
  else
    result = []
    str.scan(regexp(schemes)) { result.push $& }
    result
  end
end
            
join(*str) click to toggle source

Synopsis

URI::join(str[, str, ...])

Args

str

String(s) to work with

Description

Joins URIs.

Usage

require 'uri'

p URI.join("http://localhost/","main.rbx")
# => #<URI::HTTP:0x2022ac02 URL:http://localhost/main.rbx>
 
               # File uri/common.rb, line 519
def self.join(*str)
  u = self.parse(str[0])
  str[1 .. -1].each do |x|
    u = u.merge(x)
  end
  u
end
            
parse(uri) click to toggle source

Synopsis

URI::parse(uri_str)

Args

uri_str

String with URI.

Description

Creates one of the URI’s subclasses instance from the string.

Raises

URI::InvalidURIError

Raised if URI given is not a correct one.

Usage

require 'uri'

uri = URI.parse("http://www.ruby-lang.org/")
p uri
# => #<URI::HTTP:0x202281be URL:http://www.ruby-lang.org/>
p uri.scheme 
# => "http" 
p uri.host 
# => "www.ruby-lang.org"
 
               # File uri/common.rb, line 483
def self.parse(uri)
  scheme, userinfo, host, port, 
    registry, path, opaque, query, fragment = self.split(uri)

  if scheme && @@schemes.include?(scheme.upcase)
    @@schemes[scheme.upcase].new(scheme, userinfo, host, port, 
                                 registry, path, opaque, query, 
                                 fragment)
  else
    Generic.new(scheme, userinfo, host, port, 
                registry, path, opaque, query, 
                fragment)
  end
end
            
regexp(schemes = nil) click to toggle source

Synopsis

URI::regexp([match_schemes])

Args

match_schemes

Array of schemes. If given, resulting regexp matches to URIs whose scheme is one of the match_schemes.

Description

Returns a Regexp object which matches to URI-like strings. The Regexp object returned by this method includes arbitrary number of capture group (parentheses). Never rely on it’s number.

Usage

require 'uri'

# extract first URI from html_string
html_string.slice(URI.regexp)

# remove ftp URIs
html_string.sub(URI.regexp(['ftp'])

# You should not rely on the number of parentheses
html_string.scan(URI.regexp) do |*matches|
  p $&
end
 
               # File uri/common.rb, line 593
def self.regexp(schemes = nil)
  unless schemes
    ABS_URI_REF
  else
    /(?=#{Regexp.union(*schemes)}:)#{PATTERN::X_ABS_URI}/xn
  end
end
            
split(uri) click to toggle source

Synopsis

URI::split(uri)

Args

uri

String with URI.

Description

Splits the string on following parts and returns array with result:

* Scheme
* Userinfo
* Host
* Port
* Registry
* Path
* Opaque
* Query
* Fragment

      path = rel_segment
    elsif abs_path
      path = abs_path
    end

    # URI-reference = [ absoluteURI | relativeURI ] [ "#" fragment ]
