NAME ^

WWW::UsePerl::Journal - A use.perl.org journal tool

SYNOPSIS ^

  use WWW::UsePerl::Journal;
  my $journal = WWW::UsePerl::Journal->new('russell')
  print $journal->entrytitled("Text::Echelon");
  my @entries = $journal->entrytitles();

DESCRIPTION ^

An all round journal tool for use.perl addicts. Will access journal entries for a specific user, or the latest 30 postings, or retrieve a specific journal entry. Can also post into a specific user's journal.

Note that as on late 2010 use.perl was decommissioned. A read-only version of the site now exists on the perl.org servers, and a full database backup is also available if you wish to host your own use.perl archive.

A future edition of this distribution will allow a DBI interface to a local database to retrieve journal entries.

INTERFACE ^

Constructor

Methods

TODO ^

As use.perl.org is now read only, this distribution only scrapes the temporary site. As such development of these modules will be limited. However, I now plan to add an interface which can use a local database.

More details coming soon ....

CAVEATS ^

Beware the stringification of WWW::UsePerl::Journal::Entry objects. They're still objects, they just happen to look the same as before when you're printing them. Use ->content instead.

The time on a journal entry is the localtime of the user that created the journal entry. If you aren't in the same timezone, that time can appear an hour out.
