NAME ^

Weather::Com::Wind - class containing wind data

SYNOPSIS ^

  #!/usr/bin/perl -w
  use Weather::Com::Finder;

  # you have to fill in your ids from weather.com here
  my $PartnerId  = 'somepartnerid';
  my $LicenseKey = 'mylicense';

  my %weatherargs = (
        'partner_id' => $PartnerId,
        'license'    => $LicenseKey,
        'language'   => 'de',
  );

  my $weather_finder = Weather::Com::Finder->new(%weatherargs);
  
  my @locations = $weather_finder->find('Heidelberg');

  my $currconditions = $locations[0]->current_conditions();

  print "Wind comes from ", $currconditions->wind()->direction_long(), "\n";
  print "and its speed is", $currconditions->wind()->speed(), "\n";  

DESCRIPTION ^

Via Weather::Com::Wind one can access speed and direction (in degrees, short and long textual description) of the wind. Wind is usually an object belonging to current conditions or to a forecast (not implemented yet).

This class will not be updated automatically with each call to one of its methods. You need to call the wind() method of the parent object again to update your object.

CONSTRUCTOR ^

You usually would not construct an object of this class yourself. This is implicitely done when you call the wind() method of one current conditions or forecast object.

METHODS ^

speed()

Returns the wind speed.

direction_degrees()

Returns the direction of the wind in degrees.

direction_short([$language])

Returns the direction of the wind as wind mnemonic (N, NW, E, etc.).

These directions are being translated if you specified a language in the parameters you provided to your Weather::Com::Finder.

This attribute is dynamic language enabled.

direction_long([$language])

Returns the direction of the wind as long textual description (North, East, Southwest, etc.).

These directions are being translated if you specified a language in the parameters you provided to your Weather::Com::Finder.

This attribute is dynamic language enabled.
