I've now actually taken a look at url-coding.el (beforehand I
went as far as the first line) and can honestly say that I have no
idea what it does. :-)
Really--it’s that obscure? Well, to be a bit clearer, it defines a coding
system such that you can do something like:
(encode-coding-string "this is our query string &c."
to generate valid URLs. You can also go in the other direction, which can be
useful when your browser has saved a file to disk without transforming %20
=> "Awkward file name--it's got punctuation + everything.jpg"
The HTTP spec says any byte outside of an extremely limited range must be
encoded as %AB, where AB is the hexadecimal numeric value of that byte, when
that byte is to be passed as a part query string or as part of form
It is a toy--I wrote it as part of an effort to better document the CCL
mini-language for writing character encoding transformations. w3 certainly
already has a better version of it, written outside of the CCL framework,
and thus portable to non-Mule. But making it available as part of the
packages does make the documentation better, because it makes it easier for
people to try it out.
So I'll let you decide where to put it. If you feel net-utils
appropriate, go ahead and add it.
And it’s looking like we have a new package, mule-misc :-) .
