2.4. Parsing a URL

An accepted method for parsing URLs is useful to clarify the generic-RL syntax of Section 2.2 and to describe the algorithm for resolving relative URLs presented in Section 4. This section describes the parsing rules for breaking down a URL (relative or absolute) into the component parts described in Section 2.1. The rules assume that the URL has already been separated from any surrounding text and copied to a "parse string". The rules are listed in the order in which they would be applied by the parser.
