Bug #9127

closed

URI::Generic#normalize documentation is vague.

Added by robertgleeson (Robert Gleeson) almost 9 years ago. Updated over 5 years ago.

Backport:
[ruby-core:58430]

Description

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")
=> #<URI::HTTP:0x007f974549f5a0 URL:http://www.ruby-lang.org>

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