Re: URI Bug?

Lemme give you a code sample:
$attr_value = "products/index.html"; # This is a valid relative link!
$url = url $attr_value;
$host = $url->host;
Running the above code generates the error below. In my mind it
shouldn't produce an error because $attr_value is a valid url (even if
it doen't have the host element explicitly included). In the above case,
I'm expecting $url->host to return null or undefined but not a lousy
If you were to change the $url->host line above to to $url->scheme or
$url->frag, no errors are generated so why generate and error when you
try to get the host portion? There has to be consistency.
The issue really here is not about and invalid scheme or URL. It is
about providing consistent behavior in the URI::URL class interface.
