This module queries the CPAN Testers website and retrieves a data set.
For a date request, the data set returned relates to the ids that can
be retrieved for that date. A range request will return the records for
the requested IDs.
# establish the object
my $query = CPAN::Testers::WWW::Reports::Query::Reports->new;
# get list of ids for a particular date
my $result = $query->date(
'2012-02-08' # must be YYYY-MM-DD format
# $query is a hash ref
print "From: $result->{from}, To: $result->{to}, Range: $result->{range}\n";
# $result->{list} is an array of the actual ids posted for the given date.
# note that this list may not include all ids within $result->{range}.
print "List: " . join(', ',@{$result->{list}}) . "\n";
# get metabase for a range of ids
my $result = $query->range(
# '20120330' # just get <id>
# '20120330-' # from <id> until the latest [see caveat]
# '-20120330' # previous <n> reports up to <id> [see caveat]
# '-' # the latest <n> reports [see caveat]
# $result is a hash ref, with the reports ids as the top level keys
my @ids = sort keys %$result;
my $id = $ids[0];
print "id = $id, dist = '$result->{$id}{dist}', version = '$result->{$id}{version}'\n";
# get the raw data for all results, or a specific version if supplied
my $data = $query->raw;
# get the last error
my $error = $query->error;
When using the range parameter, note that at most 2500 records will be
returned. This is to avoid accidental request for all the records!
This value may change in the future.
