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

Functions ^

makeashorterlink

The function makeashorterlink will call the TinyURL web site passing it your long URL and will return the shorter TinyURL version.

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.
