NAME ^

WWW::ActiveState::PPM - Scrape build status from the ActiveState build farm

DESCRIPTION ^

THIS MODULE IS CONSIDERED EXPERIMENTAL

API OR FUNCTIONALITY MAY CHANGE WITHOUT NOTICE

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

This module is used to extract the build state of all the modules from the ActiveState PPM website, located at http://ppm.activestate.com/.

METHODS ^

new

  my $scraper = WWW::ActiveState::PPM->new(
      trace   => 0,
      version => '5.10',
  );

The new constructor creates a new website scraping object.

The optional boolean trace param (off by default) is supplied to make the scraping object print status to STDOUT as it runs.

The optional version param (5.10 by default) is used to set the version of Perl that the scraper should target. Legal values are '5.6', '5.8' and '5.10'.

Returns a new WWW::ActiveState::PPM object, or throws an exception on error.

trace

The trace accessor is used to discover if tracing is enabled for the object.

version

The version accessor returns the version of Perl that the scraper is targetting.

run

The run method is used to kick off the parsing process.

Returns true when all packages have been checked, or throws an exception if an error occurs.
