WWW::Ebay::Status -- encapsulate auction status
use WWW::Ebay::Status; my $oStatus = new WWW::Ebay::Status;
A convenience class for keeping track of the status of one auction, such as an auction you are selling on www.ebay.com
The status of an auction consists of several yes/no flags. Each yes/no flag indicates whether a certain operation has been performed on this auction. The available flags are described below under FLAGS.
Please tell the author if you find any.
Creates and returns a new Status object. All status flags are 'off'.
Creates and returns a new Status object, with all values derived from the given integer. (Most likely, the integer was obtained by calling as_integer() on another WWW::Ebay::Status object.) Useful as a Thaw method.
Set all flags to false.
Consider that this Status object refers to auction X. This method returns true if any operations have been performed on auction X after it has ended.
Returns a human-readable description of all the set flags.
Returns an integer representation of the status bits. Useful as a Freeze method.
These are the yes/no flags that apply to an auction. They all act as get/set methods: give an argument to set the value; give no arguments to get the value.
I.e. this auction has been uploaded to eBay and is underway.
I.e. bidding is closed.
I.e. we have sent a "Congratulations, please pay me now" email.
E.g. all actions are done, don't show this auction any more.
