Is there a good library for Ruby 1.9.2 that handles IRIs (URLs with special character like ü)
I'm looking for a library or extension that allows ruby to work with IRIs , which are URLs that contain special characters like Umlauts (ü, ö and friends). I am trying to create a webscraper and that seems to be the only thing that worries me.
I've tried some quick hacks to solve the problem, but I'd be better off if there was a tried and tested library to accomplish the same thing.
Thanks for helping me!
