Net::Amazon::Request - Baseclass for requests to Amazon's web service
my $req = Net::Amazon::Request::XXX->new( [ type => 'heavy', ] [ page => $start_page, ] [ mode => $mode, ] [ offer => 'All', ] [ sort => $sort_type, ] );
Don't use this class directly, use derived classes (like
Net::Amazon::Request::Wishlist etc.) instead to specify the type of request and its parameters.
However, there's a bunch of parameters to the constructor that all request types have in common, here they are:
heavy, but can be set to
lite if no reviews etc. on a product are wanted. Some fields (e.g.
isbn) are not going to be available in
lite mode, though.
books, but can be set to other catalog values.
1, but can be set to a different number to start with a different result page. Used in conjunction with the
max_pages parameter of the
page is the offset,
max_pages is the maximum number of pages pulled in starting at
+salesrank, but search results can be sorted in various ways, depending on the type of product returned by the search. Search results may be sorted by the following criteria:
Consult Net::Amazon::Request::Sort for details.
To receive values for the fields
offer => "All".
