I'm building an app on Google App Engine. I'm incredibly new to Python and have been beating my head against the following problem for the past 3 days.
I have a class to represent an RSS Feed and in this class I have a method called setUrl. Input to this method is a URL.
I'm trying to use the re python module to validate off of the RFC 3986 Reg-ex (http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3986.txt)
Below is a snipped which should work?
p = re.compile('^(([^:/?#]+):)?(//([^/?#]*))?([^?#]*)(\?([^#]*))?(#(.*))?') m = p.match(url) if m: self.url = url return url
