You didn't say how long...  Try this:

perl -pe 's/([ -),:;<=>?\x5b-\x5e`\x7b-\xff])/"%".unpack("H2",$1)/eg'

It might be slightly easier to read the relevant RFC and just remember
which characters are reserved and which are their ASCII values.  That has
the additional advantage that you can do the right thing depending on URL
scheme and the part of the URL where the character occurs, which the above
command line cannot do.
