    Details

      Description

      In http://svn.haxx.se/dev/archive-2009-06/0165.shtml,
      C. Michael Pilato penned the following enlightening piece:
      
      > Do we not having a single function that can take a array of const char *,
      > native encoding path-spec arguments and return an array of structures that
      > contain a UTF-8 const char * path field and peg revision?  Seems like we
      > could stand to have such a thing if we don't already.  We could then have
      > helper functions that accept one of those structures and do other
      > transformations on it, such as expanding shortcut URLs (^/) and IRIs
      > ("http://server/path with spaces") into canonical form, and so on.
      > 
      > I dunno ... I guess I just figured that after 9 years, we'd know how to
      > consistently parse our command-line arguments.
      
      This issue exists to track the task of making the above description reality.
      See also issue #3416 which prompted the discussion in the first place.
