dating a minor illegal - Validating url in javascript

Replicates the functionality of Richard Sonnen [email protected] module : code here into a nodejs module. All functions return an untainted value if the test passes, and undef if it fails.

(copied from original perl module) This module collects common URI validation routines to make input validation, and untainting easier and more readable.

I think it's due to the repeated case insensitive sets in code like .

Take out the 'i' and it doesn't hang but will of course not work as desired.

It's been broken up into separate tests to avoid Reg Ex redos which can be exploited for DOS attacks (I don't think you have to worry about that with client side js, but you do have to worry about your page hanging for so long that your visitor leaves your site).

There is one other repository I've seen that may even be better for is URL at dperini/regex-weburl.js, but it is highly complex.
