If you want to run 1.6, you can find a simple URL parser in the Ruby
cookbook.

	http://www.rubycookbook.org/showrecipe.rb?recipeID=75

My module, WebFetcher, can also be used to parse http URLs:

	irb> require 'webfetcher'
	irb> p = WebFetcher::Page.url('http://www.test.com:8080/a/b.html')
	irb> p.port
	8080
	irb> p.host
	"www.test.com"
	irb> p.path
	"/a/b.html"

You find it at
