NAME ^

WWW::WebArchive - Retrieve old versions of public web pages from various web archives (i.e. www.archive.org, Internet Archive's Wayback Machine, or Google's page cache)

SYNOPSIS ^

    NOTE: You probably want to use the "webarchive" command line utility rather than
    this API.  If you really want to use the API, you should look at how "webarchive"
    uses it as an example.

    #!/usr/bin/perl

    use WWW::WebArchive;
    my $webarchive = WWW::WebArchive->new();
    $webarchive->restore( { url => "http://www.website.com" } );

DESCRIPTION ^

WWW-WebArchive is a set of modules to retrieve old versions of public web pages from various web archives.

  * http://www.archive.org - Internet Archive's Wayback Machine
  * http://www.google.com  - Google's page cache

This is useful if

 1. Your web server crashed and you didn't have complete backups
 2. A site (such as a valuable reference source) changed or went away
    and you want to restore an old version of the site to your local
    disk
