Finance::PaycheckRecords::Fetcher - Fetch paystubs from PaycheckRecords.com
This document describes version 0.01 of Finance::PaycheckRecords::Fetcher, released April 20, 2013.
use Finance::PaycheckRecords::Fetcher; my $fetcher = Finance::PaycheckRecords::Fetcher->new( $username, $password ); my @fetched = $fetcher->mirror;
Finance::PaycheckRecords can download paystubs from PaycheckRecords.com, so you can save them for your records. You can use Finance::PaycheckRecords (available separately) to extract information from the stored paystubs.
$fetcher = Finance::PaycheckRecords::Fetcher->new( $username, $password );
This constructor creates a new Finance::PaycheckRecords::Fetcher object.
$password are your login information for PaycheckRecords.com.
$paystubs = $fetcher->available_paystubs;
This connects to PaycheckRecords.com and downloads a list of available paystubs. It returns a hashref where the keys are paystub dates in YYYY-MM-DD format and the values are URI objects to the printer-friendly paystub for that date.
Currently, it lists only the paystubs shown on the initial page after you log in. For me, this is the last 6 paystubs.
It throws an error if it is unable to get the list of available paystubs. See "DIAGNOSTICS".
@new_paystubs = $fetcher->mirror;
This connects to PaycheckRecords.com and downloads all paystubs listed by
available_paystubs that haven't already been downloaded. It returns a list of filenames of newly downloaded paystubs, or the empty list if there are no new paystubs. Each paystub is saved to the current directory under the name Paycheck-YYYY-MM-DD.html. If a file by that name already exists, then it assumes that paystub has already been downloaded (and is not included in the return value).
In scalar context, it returns the number of paystubs downloaded.
It throws an error if it is unable to mirror the paystubs. See "DIAGNOSTICS".
Finance::PaycheckRecords can be used to extract information from the downloaded paystubs.
Error GETing %s
WWW::Mechanize encountered an error getting the specified URL.
Expected date= in %s
This indicates that the specified URL does not look like it was expected to. Perhaps PaycheckRecords.com has changed their website. Look for an updated version of Finance::PaycheckRecords::Fetcher. If no update is available, report a bug.
PaycheckRecords: login failed
The fetcher was unable to login to PaycheckRecords.com. You probably supplied the wrong username or password to the constructor.
Finance::PaycheckRecords::Fetcher requires no configuration files or environment variables.
"available_paystubs" is limited to those displayed by default when you log in to PaycheckRecords.com. There's currently no way to select a different date range. Since "mirror" uses
available_paystubs, the same limitation applies.
