Use the LongURL API to expand shortened URLs from TinyURL, etc. Submit a shortened URL and then get its long equivalent returned. You can also use the API to get a list of known shortening services along with the domains they use (or view the main site's home page for a list, too). If you use the JSON return format, you can also identify an optional callback function.
Click the "Track this API" button on any profile page and never miss an API update, new app, or breaking news for that API again.
There are no source code libraries or how-to links for LongURL. If you know one why not add it?
