    # Get a list of addresses
    my $addresses = $grav->addresses;

    if (defined $addresses) {
        # Print the userimage URL for each e-mail address
        foreach my $email (keys %$addresses) {
            print $addresses->{$email}->{'userimage_url'} . "\n";
        }
    }
    else {
        # We have a problem
        print STDERR "Error: " . $grav->errstr . "\n";

        open(F, "< my_pretty_face.png");
        $data = <F>;
        close(F);

DESCRIPTION ^

WebService::Gravatar is a Perl interface to Gravatar API. It aims at providing a close representation of the basic XML-RPC API, as documented on Gravatar website: http://en.gravatar.com/site/implement/xmlrpc/. All the method names, parameter names, and data structures are the same as in the API -- the only exception is that in the API the methods are named with camelCase, while the module uses lowercase_with_infix_underscores.

METHODS ^

All the instance methods return undef on failure. More detailed error information can be obtained by calling "err" and "errstr".

new

Creates a new instance of WebService::Gravatar.

    my $grav = WebService::Gravatar->new(email => 'your@email.address',
                                         apikey => 'your_API_key');

        '62345cdd79773f62a87fcbc6abadbabe'])

Parameters:
