Initial Code
var myString:String = "/";
var urlEncodeForwardSlashedRegExp:RegExp = new RegExp("/", "gi");
myString = myString.replace(urlEncodeForwardSlashedRegExp, "%2F");

// /
// %2F

Initial URL

Initial Description
In AS2 forward slashes got url-encoded to %2F when you escaped them. But in AS3 they get ignored and left as they are. In some situations I have found that this can cause problems. So you can do it manually using this regular expression.
