NAME ^

WWW::RaptureReady - Interface to Rapture Ready's Rapture Index

VERSION ^

This document describes WWW::RaptureReady version 0.2.

SYNOPSIS ^

  use WWW::RaptureReady;
  my $rr = WWW::RaptureReady->new;
  print "URL:           ", $rr->url,     "\n",
        "Current Index: ", $rr->index,   "\n",
        "Index Change:  ", $rr->change,  "\n",
        "Last Updated:  ", $rr->updated, "\n";

DESCRIPTION ^

This module provides an interface to the Rapture Ready Rapture Index. Rapture Ready's description of the index:

  The Rapture Index has two functions: one is to factor together a
  number of related end time components into a cohesive indicator,
  and the other is to standardize those components to eliminate the
  wide variance that currently exists with prophecy reporting.

  The Rapture Index is by no means meant to predict the rapture,
  however, the index is designed to measure the type of activity
  that could act as a precursor to the rapture.

  You could say the Rapture index is a Dow Jones Industrial Average
  of end time activity, but I think it would be better if you viewed
  it as prophetic speedometer. The higher the number, the faster
  we're moving towards the occurrence of pre-tribulation rapture.

The rapture index is the "prophetic speedometer of end-time activity".

SUBROUTINES/METHODS ^

new()

Creates and returns a new WWW::RaptureReady object.

  my $rr = WWW::RaptureReady->new

url()

Returns the configured URL for retrieving the Rapture Index.

  my $url = $rr->url

url($url)

Sets the URL to be used for retrieving the Rapture Index.

  $rr->url("http://example.com/rapture.html")

fetch()

Fetches the Rapture Index HTML from the configured URL.

  $rr->fetch

sub fetch { my $self = shift; my $rv = undef; my $res = $self->{ua}->get($self->{url}); if ($res->is_success) { # Fetch and cache the Rapture Index HTML $self->{content} = $res->content; $rv = 1; } else { Carp::carp($res->status_line); } return $rv; }

index()

Returns the current index level. Calls fetch() if index not already retrieved.

  my $index = $rr->index

change()

Returns the change in the index. Calls fetch() if index not already retrieved.

  my $change = $rr->change

sub change { my $self = shift; my $rv = undef; if ($self->{content} or $self->fetch) { # TODO Make this less fragile if ($self->{content} =~ />Net Change\s+([+\-]\d+)\s*?/) { $rv = $1; } } return $rv; }
