NAME ^

WWW::Shorten::Linkz - Perl interface to lin.kz

SYNOPSIS ^

  use WWW::Shorten 'Linkz';

  $short_url = makeashorterlink($long_url);

  $long_url  = makealongerlink($short_url);
  $long_url  = makealongerlink($nickname);

DESCRIPTION ^

A Perl interface to the web site lin.kz. lin.kz simply maintains a database of long URLs, each of which has a unique identifier.

Functions ^

makeashorterlink

The function makeashorterlink will call the lin.kz web site passing it your long URL and will return the shorter (Linkz) version.

Multiple submissions of the same URL will result in different codes being returned.

makealongerlink

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

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

EXPORT

makeashorterlink, makealongerlink
