NAME ^

WWW::Shorten::IsGd - shorten (or lengthen) URLs with http://is.gd

VERSION ^

version 0.003

SYNOPSIS ^

        use WWW::Shorten::IsGd;
        use WWW::Shorten 'IsGd';

    my $url = q{http://averylong.link/wow?thats=really&really=long};
    my $short_url = makeashorterlink($url);
    my $long_url  = makealongerlink($short_url); # eq $url

DESCRIPTION ^

A Perl interface to the web site http://is.gd. is.gd simply maintains a database of long URLs, each of which has a unique identifier.

FUNCTIONS ^

makeashorterlink

The function makeashorterlink will call the is.gd web site passing it your long URL and will return the shortened link.

makealongerlink

The function makealongerlink does the reverse. makealongerlink will accept as an argument either the full TinyURL URL or just the TinyURL identifier.

If anything goes wrong, then either function will return undef.
