Here's my newest version of url-encode, complete with comments. url-encode: func [ "URL-encodes a string." value [string!] "The string to encode" /local url-encoded-string normal-char char ] compose [ url-encoded-string: make string! "" normal-char: (charset [ #"A" - #"Z" #"a" - #"z" #"0" - #"9" "$-_.!*'()" ]) ; normal chars are defined as per HTML 4.01 specs, section, referring to RFC 1738, section 2.2 ; "+" is not a normal char here because it encodes " " ; "," is not a normal char here because it is a special char as per RFC 2109, section 4.3.4 parse/all value [ any [ copy char normal-char (append url-encoded-string char) | copy char " " (append url-encoded-string "+") | copy char newline (append url-encoded-string "%0D%0A") | copy char skip (append url-encoded-string reduce ["%" skip tail (to-hex 0 + first char) -2]) ] ] url-encoded-string ] Alessandro Pini ([alex--pini--mclink--it]) Hy.
