METHODS ^

new( $args )

Creates a new WWW::Moviepilot instance.

    my $m = WWW::Moviepilot->new( $args );

$args must be a hash reference, you should supply an API key:

    $args->{api_key} = ...;

To get a valid API key you should read http://wiki.github.com/moviepilot/moviepilot-API/.

Further optional arguments:

movie( $name ) | movie( $source => $id )

Retrieve a movie as WWW::Moviepilot::Movie object. There are two ways to specify which movie to retrieve. First, you can provide the name of the movie (this name is some kind of normalised, I'm not sure how exactly):

    my $movie = $m->movie( 'matrix' );

The second form is to provide an alternate ID:

    my $movie = $m->movie( imdb => '133093' );
    my $movie = $m->movie( amazon => 'B00004R80K' );

search_movie( $query )

Searches for a movie and returns a list with results:

    my @movielist = $m->search_movie( 'matrix' );
    if ( @movielist == 0 ) {
        print 'no movies found';
    }
    else {
        # each $movie is a WWW::Moviepilot::Movie object
        foreach my $movie ( @movielist ) {
            print $movie->display_title;        # e.g. Matrix
            print $movie->production_year;      # e.g. 1999
            print scalar $movie->emotions_list; # e.g. Spannend,Aufregend

            # in list context, all *_list fields are split up by comma
            my @emotions = $movie->emotions_list;
        }
    }

At most there are 20 movies returned.

See WWW::Moviepilot::Movie.

person( $name )

Retrieve a person as WWW::Moviepilot::Person object. You should provide the name of the movie (this name is some kind of normalised, I'm not sure how exactly):

    my $person = $m->person( 'paul-newman' );

search_person( $query )

Searches for a person and returns a list with results:

    my @people = $m->search_person( 'Paul Newman' );
    if ( @people == 0 ) {
        print 'no people found';
    }
    else {
        # each $person is a WWW::Moviepilot::Person object
        foreach my $person ( @person ) {
            print $person->first_name; # e.g. Paul
            print $person->last_name;  # e.g. Newman
        }
    }

See WWW::Moviepilot::Person.

cast( $name )

Returns the cast of a movie.

    my $m = WWW::Moviepilot->new(...);
    my @cast = $m->cast('brust-oder-keule');

See WWW::Moviepilot::Person.

filmography( $name )

Returns the filmography of a person.

    my $m = WWW::Moviepilot->new(...);
    my @filmography = $m->filmography('paul-newman');

See WWW::Moviepilot::Movie.

api_key

    my $api_key = $m->api_key;

Returns the API key provided to the new constructor.

ua

    my $ua = $m->ua;

Returns the user agent, usually a LWP::UserAgent.
