SYNOPSIS ^

Estimate objects are created via Net::FreshBooks::API

    my $fb = Net::FreshBooks::API->new( {...} );
    my $estimate = $fb->estimate->create({ client_id => $id });

    # add as many items as you need
    $estimate->add_line(
        {   name      => "Estimate Test line 1",
            unit_cost => 1,
            quantity  => 1,
        }
        ),
        "Add a line to the estimate";

    ok $estimate->add_line(
        {   name      => "Estimate Test line 2",
            unit_cost => 2,
            quantity  => 2,
        }
        ),
        "Add second line to the estimate";

    print $estimate->status;    # draft

    # in order to make the URL viewable, you'll need to mark it as "sent"
    $estimate->status( 'sent' );
    $estimate->update;

    # viewable URL is:
    print $estimate->links->client_view;
