Biblio::Refbase
===============

Biblio::Refbase is an object-oriented interface to refbase
Web Reference Database sites.

refbase (http://www.refbase.net/) is a web-based bibliographic manager
which can import and export references in various formats (including BibTeX,
Endnote, MODS and OpenOffice).


SYNOPSIS

    use Biblio::Refbase;

    my $refbase = Biblio::Refbase->new(
      url      => 'http://beta.refbase.net/',
      user     => 'guest@refbase.net',
      password => 'guest',
    );
    my $response = $refbase->search(
      keywords => 'baltic sea',    # Search in keywords.
      style    => 'Chicago',       # Set citation style.
    );
    if ($response->is_success) {   # all methods from
      if ($response->hits) {       # HTTP::Response
        print $response->content;  # available
      }
      else {
        print 'Nothing found!';
      }
    }
    else {
      print 'An error occurred: ', $response->status_line;
    }
    print "\n\n";

    $response = $refbase->upload(
      user       => 'user@refbase.net',  # Switch user for
      password   => 'user',              # this request.
      show       => 1,                   # Return records
      format     => 'BibTeX',            # in BibTeX format.
      source_ids => [                    # Upload records
        'arXiv:cs/0106057',              # from arXiv.org
        'arXiv:cond-mat/0210361',        # via source IDs.
      ],
    );
    if ($response->is_success) {
      print 'Number of records imported: ', $response->rows   , "\n";
      print 'ID range of records: '       , $response->records, "\n";
      print "Records:\n\n",  $response->content;
    }

    # Upload records by supplying a string of content:
    # $response = $refbase->upload( content => $content );
