DESCRIPTION ^

A Perl interface to the web site Qurl.com. Qurl simply maintains a database of long URLs, each of which has a unique identifier.

Functions ^

makeashorterlink

The function makeashorterlink will call the Qurl web site passing it your long URL and will return the shorter Qurl version.

makealongerlink

The function makealongerlink does the reverse. makealongerlink will accept as an argument either the full Qurl URL or just the Qurl identifier.

If anything goes wrong, then either function will return undef.
