DESCRIPTION

urlcoding is a collection of functions that convert ASCII-text to standard URL's and vice-versa. The AWK code used is based on code by Heiner Steven <heiner.steven@odn.de>

The function list:

urlEncodeString
Creates a URL from an ASCII string
urlEncodeFile
Converts a file into URL-valid text
urlEncodeStream
Converts standard input into URL-valid text
urlDecodeString
Converts a URL-encoded text back to a plain-text form
urlDecodeFile
Coverts URL-encoded text in a file back to plain text
urlDecodeStream
Converts URL-encoded standard input to text

Detailed interface description follows.

The [-l] option for the encoding functions should be used when line-feed characters ('\n') are to be encoded as well.

All functions print the results of their conversions to standard output.

The exit status of all functions is that of the command 'awk', with '0' for success
