  use WWW::Search;
  my $oSearch = new WWW::Search('Ebay::Completed');
  my $sQuery = WWW::Search::escape_query("Yakface");
  $oSearch->native_query($sQuery);
  $oSearch->login('ebay_username', 'ebay_password');

DESCRIPTION ^

This class is a Ebay specialization of WWW::Search. It handles making and interpreting Ebay searches http://www.ebay.com.

This class exports no public interface; all interaction should be done through WWW::Search objects.

NOTES ^

The search is done against completed auctions only.

The query is applied to TITLES only.

See the NOTES section of WWW::Search::Ebay for a description of the results.

METHODS ^
