    Standard HTTP Characters :: Winsock

    Hi.

    I am working with HTTP 1.1. I would like to know what other characters such as alpha and punctuactions are allowed for a given URL?

    For example:

    // Valid
    http://www.oiahsdifh.com/aoihsdofhad...f/theFile.file

    // Is this valid?
    www.oiahsdifh.com/aoihsdofhad!jalsdif{joihasdf/theFile|file

    The project deals with HTTP and websites links. Thus, I need to know the standard and pattern to which servers and clients communicate.

    Thanks,
    Kuphryn

    Try checking out the HTTP RFC, it's the first on the list when searched for @ google.

    I'd say any valid filename is valid, but you really should escape special characters (e.g. ' ' becomes %20)
