This module was added to the WWW::GoKGS distribution, and also renamed to WWW::GoKGS::Scraper::GameArchives. See "HISTORY" in WWW::GoKGS::Scraper::GameArchives for details.

DESCRIPTION ^

KGS Game Archives preserves Go games played by the users. You can search games by filling in the HTML forms. The search result is provided as an HTML document naturally.

Although this module can be used to implement crawlers, the author doesn't intend to violate their policy. Use at your own risk.

ATTRIBUTES

base_uri

Defaults to http://www.gokgs.com/gameArchives.jsp. The value is used to create a request URI by query method. The request URI is passed to scrape method.

user_agent

METHODS

$result = $archives->query( user => 'YourAccount', ... )

Given key-value pairs of query parameters, returns a hash reference which represnets the result.

  my $result = $archives->query(

      month       => '7',
      oldAccounts => 'y',
      tags        => 't',
  );

The hashref is formatted as follows:

  $result;
  # => {
  #     summary => 'Games of KGS player foo, ...',
  #     games => [ # sorted by "start_time" in descending order
  #         {
  #             white => [
  #                 {
  #                     name => 'foo [4k]',
  #                     link => 'http://...&user=foo...'
  #                 }
  #             ],
  #             black => [
  #                 {
  #                     name => 'bar [6k]',
  #                     link => 'http://...&user=bar...'
  #                 }
  #             ],
  #             setup => '19x19 H2',
  #             start_time => '7/4/13 5:32 AM', # GMT
  #             type => 'Ranked',
  #             result => 'W+Res.'
  #             kifu_uri => 'http://.../games/2013/7/foo-bar.sgf',
  #         },
  #         ...
  #     ],
  #     zip_uri => 'http://.../foo-2013-7.zip',    # contains SGF files
  #     tgz_uri => 'http://.../foo-2013-7.tar.gz', # created in July 2013
  #     calendar => [
  #         {
  #             year  => '2011',
  #             month => 'Jul',
  #             link  => 'http://...&year=2011&month=7...',
