I need to be able to break a URL down into different segments. Take this path for example:
http://login:email@example.com:8080/some_path/something_else.html?param1=val¶m2=val#nose \__/ \___/ \______/ \_____________________/ \__/\____________________________/ \___________________/ \__/ | | | | | | | | Scheme Username Password Host Port Path Query Fragment
This should break down as follows:
Protocol: HTTP Username: login Password: password Host: somehost.somedomain.com Port: 8080 Path Info: /some_path/something_else.html Query String: param1=val¶m2=val
How can I do this in Delphi? Is there something ready made which can split this up for me? If not, how do I go about parsing all the different possible formats? This is assuming that it might even be a different protocol, such as HTTPS or RTSP.
