NAME
    WWW::Rapidshare::Free - Automates downloading from Rapidshare.com and
    checking links for free users

VERSION
    Version 0.01

SYNOPSIS
        use strict;
        use warnings;
        use WWW::Rapidshare::Free qw( verbose add_links check_links 
          download connection );

        # We are going to let the module be verbose and display a delay metre and 
        # progress bar.
        verbose(1);

        my @links = add_links(
            qw{
              http://rapidshare.com/files/175658683/perl-51.zip
              http://rapidshare.com/files/175662062/perl-52.zip
              }
        );

        print "Added links:\n";
        map print("\t$_\n"), @links;

        my @erroneous_links = check_links;
        map {
            my ( $uri, $error ) = @{$_};
            print "URI: $uri\nError: $error\n";
        } @erroneous_links;

        download(
            properties    => \&properties,
            file_complete => \&file_complete,
        );

        sub properties {
            my ( $file_name, $file_size ) = @_;
            print "Filename: $file_name\nFile size: $file_size bytes\n";
        }

        sub file_complete {
            # Let us restart the modem. I have updated my /etc/sudoers file to allow me
            # to execute sudo pppoe-start and sudo pppoe-stop without a password.
            connection(
                connect    => 'sudo pppoe-start',
                disconnect => 'sudo pppoe-stop',
            );
        }

FUNCTIONS
    By default, the module does not export any function. An export tag "all"
    has been defined to export all functions. The following functions can be
    exported:

    *   add_links

        Adds links to be downloaded and returns the added links as an array.
        Accepts an array of values as argument. Ignores commented links
        (links that start with a "#") and invalid links.

    *   add_links_from_file

        Adds links from a file which is given as an argument and returns the
        added links as an array. Ignores commented links (links that start
        with a "#") and invalid links.

    *   links

        Returns current links which have been added by "add_links" or
        "add_links_from_file".

    *   clear_links

        Clears current links and returns them as an array.

    *   check_links

        Checks if the links are alive or not. Returns an array of array
        references if there are dead links. The latter arrays are of the
        form "[ link, error message ]". If all links are alive, returns
        false. Additionally it also removes the dead links.

            my @erroneous_links = check_links;
            map {
                my ( $uri, $error ) = @{$_};
                print "URI: $uri\nError: $error\n";
            } @erroneous_links;

    *   download

        Downloads files off valid links. Accepts a hash with a maximum of
        four keys having callbacks as their values. The hash should be of
        the form:

            (
                delay          => \&delay_callback,
                properties     => \&properties_callback,
                progress       => \&progress_callback,
                file_complete  => \&file_complete
            )

        Callbacks are passed values as follows:

        *   "delay"

            "delay" callback is passed the number of seconds until download
            begins. It is called every second until the delay is zero. Delay
            is decremented each time the callback is executed.

        *   "properties"

            "properties" is passed the file name and file size as two
            arguments.

        *   "progress"

            Sole argument is the number of bytes of the current file
            downloaded so far. This callback is executed every instant in
            which data is written to the file which is being downloaded.

        *   "file_complete"

            This callback passes control after each file is downloaded.
            Disconnection/connection establishment or reconnection is
            possible by invoking "connection".

    *   verbose

        Controls the output verbosity. Pass it a false value such as 0 or ''
        (empty string) to turn off the delay metre and progress bar.
        Everything else turns on verbosity. Verbosity is true by default.

    *   connection

        Most useful within the callback of "download" pertaining to the hash
        key "file_complete". Accepts a hash:

            connection(
                connect    => '',  # Command to start a connection
                disconnect => '',  # Command to disconnect
                reconnect  => ''   # Command to reconnect
            );

        Either both "connect" and "disconnect" have to be specified, or
        "reconnect" has to be specified. If a single command can reconnect,
        then a value for "reconnect" will be apt, else "connect" and
        "disconnect" should be assigned the respective commands to connect
        and disconnect. The commands should be your operating system's
        commands to connect/disconnect/reconnect the internet connection.

        Windows users can use the rasdial utility to connect/disconnect:

    Check "download.pl" file inside "example" directory for usage example of
    the module.
