pecl_http 2+ won't provide http_ functions any more. They moved to Http namespace, sadly no backwards compat.

To sum it up - As of pecl_http >=2.0.0 this is no longed available. Also pecl_http 1.7.6 will work only for PHP <=5.5. For PHP 5.6 we are forced to use version pecl_http 2.0.6+

It seems to me that the return value must always have a protocol, a host and a path. If they are not provided in the input, default values are added.

From what I saw, the default value for the protocol is 'http://', for the host is the hostname (if running from cli) or the variable $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'], for the path is the variable $_SERVER['SCRIPT_NAME']
