static_url::set_userinfo

(Inherited from url_base)

Set the userinfo.

Synopsis
url_base&
set_userinfo(
    string_view s);
Description

The userinfo is set to the given string, which may contain percent-escapes. Any special or reserved characters in the string are automatically percent-encoded. The effects on the user and password depend on the presence of a colon (':') in the string:

Remarks

The interpretation of the userinfo as individual user and password components is scheme-dependent. Transmitting passwords in URLs is deprecated.

Example
assert( url( "http://example.com" ).set_userinfo( "user:pass" ).encoded_user() == "user" );
Complexity

Linear in this->size() + s.size().

Exception Safety

Strong guarantee. Calls to allocate may throw.

Parameters

Name

Description

s

The string to set.

BNF
userinfo      = [ [ user ] [ ':' password ] ]

user          = *( unreserved / pct-encoded / sub-delims )
password      = *( unreserved / pct-encoded / sub-delims / ":" )
Specification
