CGI::Untaint::url
validate a URL

CGI::Untaint::url - validate a URL


NAME

CGI::Untaint::url - validate a URL


SYNOPSIS


  use CGI::Untaint;

  my $handler = CGI::Untaint->new($q->Vars);

  my $url = $handler->extract(-as_url => 'web_address');


DESCRIPTION

is_valid

This Input Handler verifies that it is dealing with a reasonable URL. This mostly means that it will find the first thing that looks like a URL in your input, where by ``looks like'', we mean anything that URI::URL thinks is sensible, (with some tweaks, courtesy of URI::Find::Schemeless::Stricter), so it will accept any of (for example):


  http://c2.com/cgi/wiki

  www.tmtm.com

  See: http://www.redmeat.com/redmeat/1996-09-30/

  [http://www.angelfire.com/la/carlosmay/Tof.html]

  ftp://ftp.ftp.org/

The resulting value will be a the URI::URL manpage object.


SEE ALSO

the URI::URL manpage. the URI::Find::Schemeless::Stricter manpage.
