DESCRIPTION ^

Net::OAI::Base is the base class for all the OAI-PMH verb responses. It is used to provide similar methods to all the responses. The following classes inherit from Net::OAI::Base.

METHODS ^

responseDate()

Returns the content of the mandatory responseDate element.

request()

In scalar context this method returns just the base URL (text content) of the mandatory OAI request element.

 $requestText = $OAI->request();

In array context a hash with the delivered attributes of the OAI request element (mirroring the valid query parameters) is appended.

  my ($requestURI, %requestParams) = $OAI->request();
  print STDERR "Repository URL: ", $requestURI, "\n";
  print STDERR "verb was: ", $requestParams->{'verb'}, "\n";

Returns undef / () if the OAI response could not be parsed or did not contain the mandatory response element.

is_error()

Returns -1 for HTTP or XML errors, 1 for OAI error respones, 0 for no errors;

errorCode()

Returns an error code associated with the verb result.

errorString()

Returns an error message associated with an error code.

HTTPRetryAfter()

Returns the HTTP Retry-After header in case of HTTP level errors.

HTTPError()

Returns the HTTP::Response object in case of HTTP level errors.

resumptionToken()

Returns a Net::OAI::ResumptionToken object associated with the call. If there was no resumption token returned in the response then you will be returned undef.

xml()

Returns a reference to a scalar that contains the raw content of the response as XML.

file()

Returns the path to a file that contains the complete XML response.
