Subject: perldoc document bug for $URI::ABS_REMOTE_LEADING_DOTS
Version: ------------------------ This is perl, v5.6.1 built for MSWin32-x86-multi-thread (with 1 registered patch, see perl -V for more detail) Copyright 1987-2001, Larry Wall Binary build 633 provided by ActiveState Corp. Built 21:33:05 Jun 17 2002 ------------------------ Problem: perldoc URI gave me the following text and example for $URI::ABS_REMOTE_LEADING_DOTS: ----------------------------------- $URI::ABS_REMOTE_LEADING_DOTS You can also have the abs() method ignore excess ".." segments in the relative URI by setting $URI::ABS_REMOTE_LEADING_DOTS to a TRUE value. The difference is demonstrated by the following examples: URI->new("../../../foo")->abs("http://host/a/b") ==> "http://host/../../foo" local $URI::URL::ABS_REMOTE_LEADING_DOTS = 1; URI->new("../../../foo")->abs("http://host/a/b") ==> "http://host/foo" ----------------------------------- The example shows $URI::URL::ABS_REMOTE_LEADING_DOTS, where it should, as near as I can tell, be $URI::ABS_REMOTE_LEADING_DOTS.
