Summary

Function: string llEscapeURL( string url );

Returns a string that is the escaped/encoded version of url, replacing spaces with %20 etc.

• string url

Caveats

  • The return is limited to 255 characters, this means this function can only safely escape 14 character string.
    • UTF-8 characters requiring up to 6 bytes to express; though there are no characters defined in the Unicode standard as of yet that use more then 4 bytes. This has the effect that if a string containing all 6-byte characters, this function could only encode 14 characters. See: String:Caveats
