Parse a GET query string from a URL

Description

Returns a named list of key-value pairs.

Usage

parseQueryString(str, nested = FALSE)

Arguments

str

The query string. It can have a leading "?" or not.

nested

Whether to parse the query string of as a nested list when it contains pairs of square brackets []. For example, the query a[i1][j1]=x&b[i1][j1]=y&b[i2][j1]=z will be parsed as list(a = list(i1 = list(j1 = 'x')), b = list(i1 = list(j1 = 'y'), i2 = list(j1 = 'z'))) when nested = TRUE, and list(`a[i1][j1]` = 'x', `b[i1][j1]` = 'y', `b[i2][j1]` = 'z') when nested = FALSE.

Examples

parseQueryString("?foo=1&bar=b%20a%20r")
