NAME ^

Finance::InteractiveBrokers::API - Convenience functions for working with the InteractiveBrokers API

SYNOPSIS ^

    my $ibapi = Finance::InteractiveBrokers::API->new(
        version => '9.64',          # API version
    );

    my @api_versions       = $ibapi->api_versions();
    my @methods            = $ibapi->methods();
    my @events             = $ibapi->events();
    my @events_and_methods = $ibapi->everything();
    my $bool               = $ibapi->is_method( 'reqTickPrice' );
    my $bool2              = $ibapi->is_event( 'currentTime' );
    my $bool3              = $ibapi->in_api( 'anything' );
    my $api_version        = $ibapi->api_version();

DESCRIPTION ^

This module describes and enumerates the InteractiveBrokers API through successive revisions.

It is not very useful on its own, and was designed to be used by Finance::InteractiveBrokers::SWIG and POE::Component::Client::InteractiveBrokers to reduce maintenance, by isolating the API description for each revision into one single location.

This module will ideally be updated each time new versions of the IB API are released. If the author gets hit by a bus, there is enough documentation contained herein to make the changes yourself.

CONSTRUCTOR ^

new()

    my $ibapi = Finance::InteractiveBrokers::API->new(
        version => '9.64',          # API version
    );

Create a new Finance::InteractiveBrokers object.

ARGUMENTS:

version => $scalar [ Default: 9.64 ]

The API version you wish to refer to.

RETURNS: blessed $object, or undef on failure.

initialize()

    my %leftover = $self->initialize( %ARGS );

Initialize the object. If you are subclassing, override this, not "new()".

ARGUMENTS: %HASH of arguments passed into "new()"

RETURNS: %HASH of any leftover arguments.

METHODS ^

api_versions()

    my @api_versions = $ibapi->api_versions();

Get a list of all API versions that can be described by this module.

ARGUMENTS: None.

RETURNS: @ARRAY of API versions.

NOTE: api_versions() also works as a class method, and can be optionally imported via:

    use Finance::InteractiveBrokers::API qw( api_versions );

versions()

An alias for "api_versions()".

methods()

    my @methods = $ibapi->methods();

Get a list of methods in the constructor-specified version of the API.

ARGUMENTS: None.

RETURNS: @ARRAY of all API method names in this version.

events()

    my @events = $ibapi->events();

Get a list of events in the constructor-specified version of the API.

ARGUMENTS: None.

RETURNS: @ARRAY of all API events in this version.

everything()

    my @events_and_methods = $ibapi->everything();

Get a list of both methods and events in the constructor-specified version of the API.

ARGUMENTS: None.

RETURNS: @ARRAY of all API methods and events in this version.

is_method()

    my $bool = $ibapi->is_method( 'reqTickPrice' );

Check if a named method exists in the constructor-specified version of the API.

ARGUMENTS:

$method_name

The method name you wish to query.

RETURNS: TRUE or FALSE (well, 1 or 0).

is_event()

    my $bool = $ibapi->is_event( 'currentTime' );

Check if a named event exists in the constructor-specified version of the API.

ARGUMENTS:

$event_name

The event name you wish to query.

RETURNS: TRUE or FALSE (well, 1 or 0).

in_api()

    my $bool = $ibapi->in_api( 'anything' );

Check if a named method or event exists in the constructor-specified version of the API. Probably useless; just here for completeness.

ARGUMENTS:

$name

The method or event name you wish to query.

RETURNS: TRUE or FALSE (well, 1 or 0).

api_version()

    my $ibapi       = Finance::InteractiveBrokers::API->new( version => '9.64' );
    my $api_version = $ibapi->api_version();     # will return 9.64

Get the API version described by this object instance.

ARGUMENTS: None.

RETURNS: The API version as a string (e.g. '9.64').

version()

An alias for "api_version()".
