2.4.6. Parsing the Path

After the above steps, all that is left of the parse string is the URL <path> and the slash "/" that may precede it. Even though the initial slash is not part of the URL path, the parser must remember whether or not it was present so that later processes can differentiate between relative and absolute paths. Often this is done by simply storing the preceding slash along with the path.
