Add ability to check validity of a URL
Going through the URI module of Ruby, it was obvious that we can check the validity of a URI by using URI.regexp . However, I found out there is no way we can accurately check for a valid URL by using the URI module. Won't it be better if there was a built in method in the URI module that could check for the validity of a URL or a URN as well ?
This is just a suggestion and feel free to close it if this doesn't seems like something that should be implemented. :)
PS- If you feel this can or should be implemented, I would love to work on it. ;)
