NAME ^

CGI::Application::NetNewsIface - a publicly-accessible read-only interface for Usenet (NNTP) news.

SYNOPSIS ^

In a common module:

    use CGI::Application::NetNewsIface;

    sub get_app
    {
        return CGI::Application::NetNewsIface->new(
            PARAMS => {
                'nntp_server' => "nntp.perl.org",
                'articles_per_page' => 10,
                'dsn' => "dbi:SQLite:dbname=./data/mynntp.sqlite",
            }
        );
    }

To set up:

    get_app()->init_cache__sqlite();

To run

    get_app()->run();

PARAMS ^

nntp_server

The Server to which to connect using NNTP.

articles_per_page

The number of articles to display per page of listing of a newsgroup.

dsn

The DBI 'dsn' for the cache.

FUNCTIONS ^

$cgiapp->setup()

The setup subroutine as required by CGI::Application.

cgiapp_prerun()

This is the cgiapp_prerun() subroutine.

$cgiapp->update_group($group)

Updates the cache records for the NNTP group $group. This method is used for maintenance, to make sure a script loads promptly.

$cgiapp->init_cache__sqlite()

Initializes the SQLite cache that is pointed by the DBI DSN given as a parameter to the CGI script. This should be called before any use of the CGI Application itself, because otherwise there will be no tables to operate on.

$cgiapp->init_cache__mysql()

Initializes the MySQL cache that is pointed by the DBI DSN given as a parameter to the CGI script. This should be called before any use of the CGI Application itself, because otherwise there will be no tables to operate on.
