Well, you could use a regex to URL encode all the elements in your URL parameters, then join them together into a single query string.

But, there is a much simpler way, using the CPAN module URI.

Below is an example program using URI that does something similar to what you want:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use URI; use constant BASE_URL => ''; use constant REFERER => ''; my $uri = URI->new(BASE_URL); $uri->query_form( location => 'Redirect', URL => REFERER, referer => 'Links', ); print $uri;

A well formed URL will be printed out, and any parameters will be URL encoded properly.

A nice bonus is that the code made with URI is easy to read and hides all the potentially messy URL construction/encoding details from you. I almost never work with URL's by hand any longer since I started to use this module.
