Functions for URL Processing

  • ENCODE: This function receives an URL-type value as an argument and encodes it. This is necessary when different characters to those accepted by URLs are to be used. This function automatically transforms invalid characters into their corresponding encoding.
  • TOURL: This function receives a string-type value representing an URL, and returns it converted into an URL-data type value.
  • URLTOSTRING: This function receives an URL-type value as an argument and obtains its content as a string value.
