hi, i have read the link and collected badly grasped information.

my collected information :
---------------------------

1. URL's are subset of URI. all URL's are basically URI.

2. URL is usued for network address. but people will forget it very soon and start using URI because its the superset.

3. there is no use of URI nowadyas. No body use it though java has a class named URI. but its useless.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
