NAME ^

HTTP::MobileAgent - HTTP mobile user agent string parser

SYNOPSIS ^

  use HTTP::MobileAgent;

  # from PSGI $env hash:
  my $agent = HTTP::MobileAgent->new( $env );

  # from %ENV (CGI mode):
  my $agent = HTTP::MobileAgent->new();

  # from Apache (mod_perl 1.x):
  my $agent = HTTP::MobileAgent->new(Apache->request);

  # from a HTTP::Headers / HTTP::Request object:
  my $agent = HTTP::MobileAgent->new( HTTP::Headers->new( ... ) );
  my $agent = HTTP::MobileAgent->new( HTTP::Request->new( ... ) );

  # from a raw user agent string:
  my $agent = HTTP::MobileAgent->new($agent_string);

  if ($agent->is_docomo) {
      # or if ($agent->name eq 'DoCoMo')
      # or if ($agent->isa('HTTP::MobileAgent::DoCoMo'))
      # it's NTT DoCoMo i-mode.
      # see what's available in H::MA::DoCoMo
  } elsif ($agent->is_vodafone) {
      # it's Vodafone(J-Phone).
      # see what's available in H::MA::Vodafone
  } elsif ($agent->is_ezweb) {
      # it's KDDI/EZWeb.
      # see what's available in H::MA::EZweb
  } else {
      # may be PC
      # $agent is H::MA::NonMobile
  }

  my $display = $agent->display;        # HTTP::MobileAgent::Display
  if ($display->color) { ... }

DESCRIPTION ^

HTTP::MobileAgent parses HTTP_USER_AGENT strings of (mainly Japanese) mobile HTTP user agents. It'll be useful in page dispatching by user agents.

METHODS ^

Here are common methods of HTTP::MobileAgent subclasses. More agent specific methods are described in each subclasses. Note that some of common methods are also overrided in some subclasses.

new
  $agent = HTTP::MobileAgent->new;       # from %ENV
  $agent = HTTP::MobileAgent->new($env); # PSGI env hash
  $agent = HTTP::MobileAgent->new($r);   # Apache or HTTP::Request
  $agent = HTTP::MobileAgent->new($ua_string);

Parses HTTP headers and constructs HTTP::MobileAgent subclass instance.

If no argument is supplied, $ENV{HTTP_*} is used (i.e., expects a CGI environment to be setup)

If a single hash reference is given, then that hash is treated as a PSGI environment hash.

If a blessed reference which is based on Apache (mod_perl 1.x), HTTP::Headers or HTTP::Request is passed, those will be used accordingly to parse data.

If a single scalar is given, then that is taken to be a raw user agent string. Note that most likely this form of usage will not give you much information, as some mobile agents put useful information on HTTP headers other than only User-Agent: (like x-jphone-msname in J-Phone).

user_agent
  print "User-Agent: ", $agent->user_agent;

returns User-Agent string.

name
  print "name: ", $agent->name;

returns User-Agent name like 'DoCoMo'.

is_docomo, is_vodafone(is_j_phone, is_softbank), is_ezweb, is_wap1, is_wap2, is_tuka,is_non_mobile
   if ($agent->is_docomo) { }

returns if the agent is DoCoMo, Vodafone(J-Phone) or EZweb.

carrier
  print "carrier: ", $agent->carrier;
carrier_longname
  print "carrier_longname: ", $agent->carrier_longname;
display
  my $display = $agent->display;

returns HTTP::MobileAgent::Display object. See HTTP::MobileAgent::Display for details.

user_id
  my $user_id = $agent->user_id;

return X-DCMGUID, X-UP-SUBNO or X-JPHONE-UID.

gps_compliant
  if ($agent->gps_compliant) { }

returns if the agent is GPS compliant.

WARNINGS ^

Following warnings might be raised when $^W is on.

"%s: no match. Might be new variants. please contact the author of HTTP::MobileAgent!"

User-Agent: string does not match patterns provided in subclasses. It may be faked user-agent or a new variant. Feel free to mail me to inform this.

NOTE ^

"Why not adding this module as an extension of HTTP::BrowserDetect?"

Yep, I tried to do. But the module's code seems hard enough for me to extend and don't want to bother the author for this mobile-specific features. So I made this module as a separated one.

MORE IMPLEMENTATIONS ^

If you have any idea / request for this module to add new subclass, I'm open to the discussion or (more preferable) patches. Feel free to mail me.

OTHER LANGUAGE BINDINGS ^

This module is now ported to PHP as Net::UserAgent::Mobile by Atsuhiro KUBO. See http://pear.php.net/package-info.php?pacid=180 for details.
