Instance Property

path

The path, conforming to RFC 1808. (read-only)

Declaration

@property(readonly, copy) NSString *path;

Discussion

This property contains the path, unescaped using the stringByReplacingPercentEscapesUsingEncoding: method. If the receiver does not conform to RFC 1808, this property contains nil.

If the receiver contains a file or file reference URL (as determined with fileURL), this property’s value is suitable for input into methods of NSFileManager or NSPathUtilities. If the path has a trailing slash, it is stripped.

If the receiver contains a file reference URL, this property’s value provides the current path for the referenced resource, which may be nil if the resource no longer exists.

If the parameterString property contains a non-nil value, the path may be incomplete. If the receiver contains an unencoded semicolon, the path property ends at the character before the semicolon. The remainder of the URL is provided in the parameterString property.

To obtain the complete path, if parameterString contains a non-nil value, append a semicolon, followed by the parameter string.

Per RFC 3986, the leading slash after the authority (host name and port) portion is treated as part of the path. For example, in the URL http://www.example.com/index.html, the path is /index.html.
