I haven't tried it but wouldn't URI and it canonical and eq methods work for you?

Update: Looks like URI will not normalize query params. Something like this should work (note, I did not check all cases - feel free to fix!)

!/usr/bin/perl -wd use URI; my $u1 = URI->new(""); my $u2 = URI->new(""); my $u1c = $u1->canonical; my $u2c = $u2->canonical; if( urlsEqual( $u1c, $u2c ) ) { print "equal\n"; } else { print "not equal\n"; } sub urlsEqual { my( $u1, $u2 ) = @_; my( $q1, $q2 ); # First try URI eq return 1 if( $u1->eq( $u2 ) ); # nope ... adjust query $q1 = $u1->query(); $q2 = $u2->query(); $q1 = join( '&', sort( split( /[&;]/, $q1 ) ) ) if $q1; $q2 = join( '&', sort( split( /[&;]/, $q2 ) ) ) if $q2; $u1->query( $q1 ); $u2->query( $q2 ); return $u1->eq( $u2 ); }
