WebService::Advogato - XML-RPC interface to www.advogato.org
use WebService::Advogato; my $client = new WebService::Advogato('username', 'password'); my $num_entries = $client->len('jaldhar'); $client->set(-1, '<p>A diary entry.</p>');
This module implements the XML-RPC interface to the diaries at www.advogato.org a site for developers of free software.
The module is implemented as a class. The methods use standard perl scalars and arrays but internally they use XML-RPC datatypes: int, string and date. The following descriptions include the datatype for your reference.
An object is constructed using the standard syntax. The constructor can take two parameters: username, and password which are the name and password of an advogato user account. These are used in methods which require logging in.
Return the number of entries in a diary. This implements the diary.len RPC function.
Return a diary entry. The index is zero-based, so if len returns 2 then valid indices are 0 and 1. This implements the diary.get RPC function.
Return the creation and last updated dates of a diary entry. If the entry has not been updated then the updated date will be the same as the creation date. This implements the diary.getDates RPC function.
Sets a diary entry. Use -1 as the index to post a new entry, although the value returned by len is also acceptable. This implements the diary.set RPC function.
Returns zero if the user does not exist, or one if he does. This implements the user.exists RPC function.
Returns the certification level of the requested user. This implements the cert.get RPC function.
These methods are only useful for testing purposes.
Capitalized a string. This implements the test.capitalize RPC function.
Guesses a number. (Actually always returns 'You guessed' and 42.)
Squares a number. This implements the test.square RPC function.
Returns the sum and product of a pair of numbers. This implements the test.sumprod RPC function.
Returns the length of a string. This implements the test.strlen RPC function.
