build(args) public


Create a new URI::HTTP object from components, with syntax checking.

The components accepted are userinfo, host, port, path, query and fragment.

The components should be provided either as an Array, or as a Hash with keys formed by preceding the component names with a colon.

If an Array is used, the components must be passed in the order [userinfo, host, port, path, query, fragment].


newuri = URI::HTTP.build({:host => 'www.example.com',
  :path> => '/foo/bar'})

newuri = URI::HTTP.build([nil, "www.example.com", nil, "/path",
  "query", 'fragment'])

Currently, if passed userinfo components this method generates invalid HTTP URIs as per RFC 1738.
