       uf_uristr - Expand URI using heuristics

	use URI::Heuristic qw(uf_uristr);
	$u = uf_uristr("perl"); 	    # http://www.perl.com
	$u = uf_uristr("www.sol.no/sol");   # http://www.sol.no/sol
	$u = uf_uristr("aas");		    # http://www.aas.no
	$u = uf_uristr("ftp.funet.fi");     # ftp://ftp.funet.fi
	$u = uf_uristr("/etc/passwd");	    # file:/etc/passwd

       This module provides functions that expand strings into real absolute URIs using some
       builtin heuristics.  Strings that already represent absolute URIs (i.e. start with a
       "scheme:" part) are never modified and are returned unchanged.  The main use of these
       functions are to allow abbreviated URIs similar to what many web browsers allow for URIs
       typed in by the user.

       The following functions are provided:

	   The uf_uristr() function will try to make the string passed as argument into a proper
	   absolute URI string.  The "uf_" prefix stands for "User Friendly".  Under MacOS, it
	   assumes that any string with a common URL scheme (http, ftp, etc.) is a URL rather
	   than a local path.  So don't name your volumes after common URL schemes and expect
	   uf_uristr() to construct valid file: URL's on those volumes for you, because it won't.

	   This functions work the same way as uf_uristr() but it will return a "URI" object.

       If the hostname portion of a URI does not contain any dots, then certain qualified guesses
       will be made.  These guesses are governed be the following two environment variables.

       COUNTRY	 This is the two letter country code (ISO 3166) for your location.  If the domain
		 name of your host ends with two letters, then it is taken to be the default
		 country. See also Locale::Country.

		 Contain a space separated list of URL patterns to try.  The string "ACME" is for
		 some reason used as a placeholder for the host name in the URL provided.  Exam-

		  URL_GUESS_PATTERN="www.ACME.no www.ACME.se www.ACME.com"

		 Specifying URL_GUESS_PATTERN disables any guessing rules based on country.  An
		 empty URL_GUESS_PATTERN disables any guessing that involves host name lookups.
