We really, really need a way to get URLs from plugins.

At the moment we push people off to using LWP, but that is a PITA becuase of things like the proxy setup.

The best thing to do is to publish getUrl through Func. I was reluctant to do this before because is it pretty brain dead, but recoding it to generate a pseudo-HTTP::Request object is the way to go.

This allows a simple resolution to Item2726 (and provision of a key service to other plugins)

Please seriously consider this enhancement for 4.1.1. It is something that Func has needed for a looooong time. It's nearly amazing that I was actually motivated to implement it.


If this had been a week ago then OK. But I have very few hours and 4.1.1 HAS TO go out this weekend for various reasons.

It is really too risky.

But I am OK with 4.1.2 and not waiting for Freetown. Just keep it in waiting for Feedback.


OK, n.p. I hadn't completed testing anyway, and Peter asked to increment the $TWiki::Plugins::VERSION, which is a fair point.


OK, it's ready for release; but should we merge to 4.1.2 or wait for 4.2?? Could really do with some reviews.


Could you please document your implementation at TWiki:Codev/AddGetUrlToTWikiFunc ?

Will do

Reckon this is all done now.


Cleaned "WaitingFor" field.
