Derives absolute URL from relative and source URLs.

Useful when:

  • extracting full HREF URLs for links in a HTML document
  • determining absolute new URL for a 301 redirect where the HTTP server returned a relative Location value


The "Hello World" example

$deriver = new \webignition\AbsoluteUrlDeriver\AbsoluteUrlDeriver(

$this->assertEquals('http://www.example.com/server.php?param1=value1', $deriver->getAbsoluteUrl());
