...does what you asked for.
However, there are many, many URLs that such a substitution would be useless for such as http://www.perl.org/, http://perlguru.com/, http://188.8.131.52/, or something really wacky like http://http://www.to/ (and, yes, those all really do work).
Consider yourself warned!
