urlparser – a simple python program for extracting info from URLs

I regularly run into the need to use part of a URL inside of shell scripts- such as extracting the hostname and port from a URL in order to check if the service is reachable- and got a bit tired of screwing with regex. The urllib python library’s parse component is a great tool for managing this, so I wrote urlparser to expose that library directly from the command line and tossed it up on pypi for others to use.
