Best way to check if a URL is valid

I want to use PHP to check, if string stored in $myoutput variable contains a valid link syntax or is it just a normal text. The function or solution, that I’m looking for, should recognize all links formats including the ones with GET parameters.

A solution, suggested on many sites, to actually query string (using CURL or file_get_contents() function) is not possible in my case and I would like to avoid it.

I thought about regular expressions or another solution.
