I'm implementing a requirement for a Google service that reads in part



With urls..



"To start, repeatedly URL-unescape the URL until it has no more
hex-encodings."



Do lots of stuff here with url.



Finally "After performing these steps, percent-escape all characters in
the URL which are <= ASCII 32, >= 127, or "%". The escapes should use
uppercase hex characters."



Do any of you have a very fast way to do this?



The implementation  I have now is dreadfully slow, I'll spare you my
solution. J



I need a solution that will work with Ruby 1.8.6 & 1.9.1
