class URIException: object.Exception;
This Exception is thrown if something goes wrong when encoding or decoding a URI.
string decode(Char)(in Char[] encodedURI)
if (isSomeChar!Char);
Decodes the URI string encodedURI into a UTF-8 string and returns it. Escape sequences that resolve to reserved URI characters are not replaced. Escape sequences that resolve to the '#' character are not replaced.
string decodeComponent(Char)(in Char[] encodedURIComponent)
if (isSomeChar!Char);
Decodes the URI string encodedURI into a UTF-8 string and returns it. All escape sequences are decoded.
string encode(Char)(in Char[] uri)
if (isSomeChar!Char);
Encodes the UTF-8 string uri into a URI and returns that URI. Any character not a valid URI character is escaped. The '#' character is not escaped.
string encodeComponent(Char)(in Char[] uriComponent)
if (isSomeChar!Char);
Encodes the UTF-8 string uriComponent into a URI and returns that URI. Any character not a letter, digit, or one of -.!~*'() is escaped.
ptrdiff_t uriLength(Char)(in Char[] s)
if (isSomeChar!Char);
Does string s[] start with a URL?
Returns:
-1 it does not len it does, and s[0..len] is the slice of s[] that is that URL
Examples:
string s1 = "http://www.digitalmars.com/~fred/fredsRX.html#foo end!";
assert (uriLength(s1) == 49);
string s2 = "no uri here";
assert (uriLength(s2) == -1);
assert (uriLength("issue 14924") < 0);
ptrdiff_t emailLength(Char)(in Char[] s)
if (isSomeChar!Char);
Does string s[] start with an email address?
Returns:
-1 it does not len it does, and s[0..i] is the slice of s[] that is that email address

References: RFC2822

Examples:
string s1 = "my.e-mail@www.example-domain.com with garbage added";
assert (emailLength(s1) == 32);
string s2 = "no email address here";
assert (emailLength(s2) == -1);
assert (emailLength("issue 14924") < 0);
