NAME ^

WWW::Dict::Leo::Org - Interface module to dictionary dict.leo.org

SYNOPSIS ^

 use WWW::Dict::Leo::Org;
 my $leo = new WWW::Dict::Leo::Org();
 my @matches = $leo->translate($term);

DESCRIPTION ^

WWW::Dict::Leo::Org is a module which connects to the website dict.leo.org and translates the given term. It returns an array of hashes. Each hash contains a left side and a right side of the result entry.

OPTIONS ^

new() has several parameters, which can be supplied as a hash.

All parameters are optional.

-Host

The hostname of the dict website to use. For the moment only dict.leo.org is supported, which is also the default - therefore changing the hostname would not make much sense.

-Port

The tcp port to use for connecting, the default is 80, you shouldn't change it.

-UserAgent

The user-agent to send to dict.leo.org site. Currently this is the default:

 Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; de; rv:1.8.1.9) Gecko/20071025 Firefox/2.0.0.9
-Proxy

Fully qualified proxy server. Specify as you would do in the well known environment variable http_proxy, example:

 -Proxy => "http://192.168.1.1:3128"
-ProxyUser -ProxyPass

If your proxy requires authentication, use these parameters to specify the credentials.

-Debug

If enabled (set to 1), prints a lot of debug information to stderr, normally only required for developers or to report bugs (see below).

Parameters to control behavior of dict.leo.org:

-SpellTolerance

Be tolerant to spelling errors.

Default: turned on.

Possible values: on, off.

-Morphology

Provide morphology informations.

Default: standard.

Possible values: standard, none, forcedAll.

-CharTolerance

Possible values: fuzzy, exact, relaxed.

METHODS ^

translate($term)

Use this method after initialization to connect to dict.leo.org and translate the given term. It returns an array of hashes containing the actual results.

 use WWW::Dict::Leo::Org;
 use Data::Dumper;
 my $leo = new WWW::Dict::Leo::Org();
 my @matches = $leo->translate("test");
 print Dumper(\@matches);

which prints:

 $VAR1 = [
          {
            'data' => [
                        {
                          'left' => 'check',
                          'right' => 'der Test'
                        },
                        {
                          'left' => 'quiz (Amer.)',
                          'right' => 'der Test    [Schule]'
                      ],
            'title' => 'Unmittelbare Treffer'
          },
          {
            'data' => [
                        {
                          'left' => 'to fail a test',
                          'right' => 'einen Test nicht bestehen'
                        },
                        {
                          'left' => 'to test',
                          'right' => 'Tests macheneinen Test machen'
                        }
                      ],
            'title' => 'Verben und Verbzusammensetzungen'
          },
            'data' => [
                        {
                          'left' => 'testing  adj.',
                          'right' => 'im Test'
                        }
                      ],
            'title' => 'Wendungen und Ausdrücke'
          }
        ];
