URL decoder

What is URL decoder

URL decoding is the reverse process of URL encoding. It involves converting encoded characters in a URL back to their original form. URLs may contain special characters that have been encoded to ensure proper transmission and interpretation, such as "%20" for a space or "%3F" for a question mark. URL decoding converts these encoded characters back to their original ASCII representation. This is essential when processing input from URLs or when handling data transmitted via web-based applications, ensuring that the data is correctly interpreted and processed. Most programming languages offer built-in functions or libraries to handle URL decoding, making it simple to work with encoded URLs.
