Name

linkdecode — decode hex-encoded entities found within URLs

DESCRIPTION

The filter decodes hex-encoded entities found within URLs.

The filter is explicitly called linkdecode because it only operates on <form action=>, href= and src= contents. Therefore, it is likely to be useful only when passed lines containing HTML URLs or source specifiers (such as <a> or <img> tags).

EXAMPLES

No examples are available at this time. We do consider this a problem and will try to supply some.
