NAME ^

Audio::MPD::Collection - class to query MPD's collection

VERSION ^

version 1.120610

SYNOPSIS ^

    my @songs = $mpd->collection->all_songs;
    # and lots of other methods

DESCRIPTION ^

Audio::MPD::Collection is a class meant to access & query MPD's collection. You will be able to use those high-level methods instead of using the low-level methods provided by mpd itself.

Note that you're not supposed to call the constructor yourself, an Audio::MPD::Collection is automatically created for you during the creation of an Audio::MPD object - it can then be used with the collection() accessor.

RETRIEVING SONGS & DIRECTORIES ^

    my @items = $coll->all_items( [$path] );
