Finally, I think I don't need to run unit tests to get the part of the source
code that deals only with the validity of a url. Based on your experience,
what is the best way to get this, I tried to create a new project, copy the
Kurl class of webkit and put it in my new project, and a main file that
creates an object Kurl, but I got lots of problems of file dependencies,
have you a better way to do this?
It was clear enough? I hope it !
