    my  $queue = Scrappy::Queue->new;
    
        $queue->add($url);

            ... $queue->add(...);

DESCRIPTION ^

Scrappy::Queue provides a system for saving URLs to a recordset/queue and iterating of them using the Scrappy framework.

add

    my  $queue = Scrappy::Queue->new;
        $queue->add($url);

clear

The clear method completely empties the queue and resets the cursor (loop position).

    my  $queue = Scrappy::Queue->new;
    
        $queue->add(...);
        $queue->add(...);
        $queue->add(...);
    
        $queue->clear;

reset

The reset method resets the cursor (loop position).

    my  $queue = Scrappy::Queue->new;
    
        $queue->add(...);
        $queue->add(...);
        $queue->add(...);
        
        while (my $url = $queue->next) {
            $queue->reset if ...; # beware the infinate loop
        }
        
        $queue->reset;

current

The current method returns the URL in the current loop position.

    my  $queue = Scrappy::Queue->new;
    
        $queue->add(...);
        $queue->add(...);
        $queue->add(...);
        
        while (my $url = $queue->next) {
            last if ...;
        }
        
        print 'great' if $url eq $queue->current;

next

The next method moves the cursor to the next loop position and returns the URL.

    my  $queue = Scrappy::Queue->new;
    
        $queue->add(...);
        $queue->add(...);
        $queue->add(...);
        
        while (my $url = $queue->next) {
            ...
        }

previous

The previous method moves the cursor to the previous loop position and returns the URL.

    my  $queue = Scrappy::Queue->new;
    
        $queue->add(...);
        $queue->add(...);
        $queue->add(...);
        
        while (my $url = $queue->next) {
            ...
        }
        
        print $queue->previous;

first

The first method moves the cursor to the first loop position and returns the URL.

    my  $queue = Scrappy::Queue->new;
    
        $queue->add(...);
        $queue->add(...);
        $queue->add(...);
        
        print $queue->first;

last

The last method moves the cursor to the last loop position and returns the URL.

    my  $queue = Scrappy::Queue->new;
    
        $queue->add(...);
        $queue->add(...);
        $queue->add(...);
        
        print $queue->last;

    my  $queue = Scrappy::Queue->new;
    
        $queue->add(...);
        $queue->add(...);
        $queue->add(...);
