NAME ^

URI::Find::UTF8 - Finds URI from arbitrary text containing UTF8 raw characters in its path

SYNOPSIS ^

  use utf8;
  use URI::Find::UTF8;

  # Since this code has "use utf8", $text is UTF-8 flagged
  my $text = <<TEXT;
  Japanese Wikipedia home page is http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/メインページ
  TEXT

  my $finder = URI::Find::UTF8->new(\&callback);
  $finder->find(\$text);

  sub callback {
      my($uri, $orig) = @_;

      # $uri is an URI object that represents
      #   "http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E3%83%A1%E3%82%A4%E3%83%B3%E3%83%9A%E3%83%BC%E3%82%B8"
      # $orig is a string
      #   "http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/メインページ"
  }

DESCRIPTION ^

URI::Find::UTF8 is an URI::Find extension to find URIs from arbitrary chunk of text that has UTF8 raw characters in its path (instead of URI escaped %XX%XX%XX form).

This often happens when Safari users paste an URL to IM or IRC window, because Safari displays decoded URL path in its location bar, such as:

  http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/メインページ

This module tries to extract URLs like this (in addition to normal URLs that URI::Find can find) and give you an encoded URL (URI object) and the raw, unencoded string.

This module passes URI::Find's own test file (besides the old find_uris call), so this can be used as a drop-in replacement for the module.

Note that this module doesn't (yet) handle International Domain Names.
