$decoded = unescape($url_encoded);


CGI::Simple::Util contains essentially non public subroutines used by CGI::Simple. There are HTML and URL escape and unescape routines that may be of some use.

An internal object is used to store a number of system specific details to enable the escape routines to be accurate.
