Bug #9127

URI::Generic#normalize documentation is vague.

Added by Robert Gleeson about 2 years ago. Updated almost 2 years ago.

ruby -v:- Backport:


the documentation for URI::Generic#normalize is vague and does not provide enough details about the algorithm that applies normalization.
the documentation says, "Returns normalized URI" and nothing more. I would have expected a short piece that explains how normalization
is applied.

pry session attached (ruby = v2.0.0)

$ pry
[1] pry(main)> require "uri"
=> true

[2] pry(main)> uri = URI.parse("http://www.ruby-lang.org")
=> #

[3] pry(main)> ? uri.normalize
