Subject: LWP::UserAgent thinks # in URL is a comment
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 296b
When using something like this as a test: my $url = 'http://127.0.0.1/$$%%$$##!!'; my $browser = LWP::UserAgent->new(); my $response = $browser->get($url); The request is actually makes to the webserver truncates everything AFTER the # sign in the URL therefore doesn't submit the complete url.

The struff after the first '#' is the fragment spec of the URL and is not meant for the server. Read more about it here: http://www.gbiv.com/protocols/uri/rfc/rfc3986.html#fragment

Hi Gisle, I was looking through the RFC, though I'm not too familiar with it, the problem stems from actually a script that we post against to get status of a user account: http://127.0.0.1/status.asp?pt1=xxxx&pt2=yyy##yy in this case it's not meant to be fragmented, but part of a value being submitted to a page via the URL. Would this then be invalid according to the RFC? Nicola Show quoted text

If you want to pass '#' to the server as part of the URL it has to be percent encoded, so please try to this URL instead: http://127.0.0.1/status.asp?pt1=xxxx&pt2=yyy%23%23yy

Ahh... that's what I was trying to find in the RFC, just couldn't find that... Thanks! On Fri Aug 04 18:38:41 2006, GAAS wrote: Show quoted text
