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 => 'index.pl'; use constant REFERER => 'http://search.cpan.org/search?dist=URI'; 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.

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
