NAME ^

WWW::Ebay::Status -- encapsulate auction status

SYNOPSIS ^

  use WWW::Ebay::Status;
  my $oStatus = new WWW::Ebay::Status;

DESCRIPTION ^

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.

BUGS ^

Please tell the author if you find any.

METHODS ^

new

Creates and returns a new Status object. All status flags are 'off'.

new_from_integer

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.

reset

Set all flags to false.

any_local_actions

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.

as_text

Returns a human-readable description of all the set flags.

as_integer

Returns an integer representation of the status bits. Useful as a Freeze method.

FLAGS ^

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.
