A tool to extract and modify URL features

Project Description

**urp** parses URLs.
It's a command-line tool that enables users to extract and modify their features.
It knows all about
query strings,

Basic Usage

**urp** takes URLs as input,
and outputs URLs or features of URLs depending on its options.
It takes URLs specified as arguments and newline-delimited URLs from standard input.


$ urp -s
$ echo '' | urp -s
$ urp -D /search -Q q=urp ''

Printing URL Features

If any of these options are specified,
**urp** will abandon its default behavior of printing full URLs
and instead print the features specified.

-s, --print-scheme Print scheme.
-u, --print-username Print username.
-w, --print-password Print password.
-o, --print-hostname Print hostname.
-p, --print-port Print port.
-a, --print-authority
Print authority.
The authority is comprised of the `username`,
-d, --print-path Print path.
--print-params Print params.
-q, --print-query Print query string.
--print-query-names Print query parameter names.
--print-query-values Print query parameter values.
-f, --print-fragment Print fragment.
-g QUERY, --print-query-value QUERY
Print value of query parameter.

Modifying URLs

Modifying features of URLs will cause the changes to be reflected in the output,
both through the printing options and through default behavior.

-S SCHEME, --scheme SCHEME
Set scheme to `SCHEME`.
Set username to `USERNAME`.
Set password to `PASSWORD`.
Set hostname to `HOSTNAME`.
-P PORT, --port PORT Set port to `PORT`.
-D PATH, --path PATH Set or append path as `PATH`.
If `PATH` begins with a ``/`` then the path is replaced.
Otherwise it is appended to the existing path.
--params PARAMS Set params to `PARAMS`.
--query QUERY Set query to `QUERY`.
-Q PAIR, --append-query PAIR
Append query parameter. `PAIR` should have the format ``NAME=VALUE``.
Set fragment to `FRAGMENT`.

Altering Behavior

By default,
**urp** outputs URL-encoded fields where necessary
and preserves the order of query parameters.

--no-url-encoding Disable URL encoding in output.
--no-query-params Disable query parameter parsing.
**urp** will not try to parse `NAME=VALUE` pairs from queries.
--sort-query Sort query parameters by name in output.
-x QUERY, --ignore-query QUERY
Ignore query parameter.

Each URL processed emits a `record`,
consisting of multiple `fields`.
By default,
records are separated with newlines
and fields are separated with spaces.
To change the record separator,
set the ``RS`` environment variable.
To change the field separator,
set the ``OFS`` environment variable.
