NAME
    WWW::KGS::GameArchives - Interface to KGS Go Server Game Archives
    (DEPRECATED)

SYNOPSIS
      use WWW::KGS::GameArchives;
      my $archives = WWW::KGS::GameArchives->new;
      my $result = $archives->query( user => 'YourAccount' );

DEPRECATION
    This module was added to the WWW::GoKGS distribution, and also renamed
    to WWW::GoKGS::Scraper::GameArchives. See "HISTORY" in
    WWW::GoKGS::Scraper::GameArchives for details.

    This module will not be maintained anymore. Thanks for using
    "WWW::KGS::GameArchives".

DESCRIPTION
    KGS <http://www.gokgs.com/> Game Archives preserves Go games played by
    the users. You can search games by filling in the HTML forms. The search
    result is provided as an HTML document naturally.

    This module provides yet another interface to send a query to the
    archives, and also parses the result into a neatly arranged Perl data
    structure.

  DISCLAIMER
    According to KGS's "robots.txt", bots are not allowed to crawl the Game
    Archives:

      User-agent: *
      Disallow: /gameArchives.jsp

    Although this module can be used to implement crawlers, the author
    doesn't intend to violate their policy. Use at your own risk.

  ATTRIBUTES
    base_uri
        Defaults to "http://www.gokgs.com/gameArchives.jsp". The value is
        used to create a request URI by "query" method. The request URI is
        passed to "scrape" method.

    user_agent
        This attribute is used to construct a Web::Scraper object if a value
        is set.

  METHODS
    $result = $archives->query( user => 'YourAccount', ... )
        Given key-value pairs of query parameters, returns a hash reference
        which represnets the result.

          my $result = $archives->query(
              user        => 'foo',
              year        => '2013',
              month       => '7',
              oldAccounts => 'y',
              tags        => 't',
          );

        The hashref is formatted as follows:

          $result;
          # => {
          #     summary => 'Games of KGS player foo, ...',
          #     games => [ # sorted by "start_time" in descending order
          #         {
          #             white => [
          #                 {
          #                     name => 'foo [4k]',
          #                     link => 'http://...&user=foo...'
          #                 }
          #             ],
          #             black => [
          #                 {
          #                     name => 'bar [6k]',
          #                     link => 'http://...&user=bar...'
          #                 }
          #             ],
          #             setup => '19x19 H2',
          #             start_time => '7/4/13 5:32 AM', # GMT
          #             type => 'Ranked',
          #             result => 'W+Res.'
          #             kifu_uri => 'http://.../games/2013/7/foo-bar.sgf',
          #         },
          #         ...
          #     ],
          #     zip_uri => 'http://.../foo-2013-7.zip',    # contains SGF files
          #     tgz_uri => 'http://.../foo-2013-7.tar.gz', # created in July 2013
          #     calendar => [
          #         {
          #             year  => '2011',
          #             month => 'Jul',
          #             link  => 'http://...&year=2011&month=7...',
          #         },
          #         ...
          #     ]
          # }

        The possible parameters are as follows:

        user (required)
            Represents a KGS username.

              my $result = $archives->query( user => 'foo' );

        year, month
            Can be used to search games played in the specified month.

              my $result = $archives->query(
                  user  => 'foo',
                  year  => '2013',
                  month => '7',
              );

        oldAccounts
            Can be used to search games played by expired and guest
            accounts.

              my $result = $archives->query(
                  user        => 'foo',
                  oldAccounts => 'y'
              );

        tags
            Can be used to search games tagged by the specified "user".

              my $result = $archives->query(
                  user => 'foo',
                  tags => 't'
              );

    $result = $archives->scrape( $stuff )
        The given arguments are passed to Web::Scraper's "scrape" method.
        "query" method is just a wrapper of this method. For example, you
        can pass URIs included by the return value of "query" method.

FILTERING VALUES
    This module doesn't modify the values of $result at all. Use Moo's or
    Mouse's "coerce" to filter values. See "examples/".
