    That's excellent. In retrospect, XS is a very obvious way to deal with that :)...

    Reddit::API has been renamed to Reddit::Client. Thank you for the suggestion....
  • Posted Simplified error cleanup with Filter::Cleanup to Jeff Ober

    Writing fault-tolerant programs can be a tedious exercise. Often, each step in the program logic depends on the success of the step prior, resulting in deeply nested calls to eval. Tracking the global $@ and ensuring that errors are not lost can be tricky and result in hard-to-follow logic.

  • Posted Reddit::API renamed to Reddit::Client to Jeff Ober

    To better fit CPAN's naming conventions, Reddit::API has been renamed to Reddit::Client. As there are no dependencies in the reverse lookup graph, Reddit::API is scheduled for deletion.

    Reddit::Client begins its life at 0.02 with mostly complete unit tests (thanks for the footnote, Gabor),…

  • Posted Reddit API for Perl to Jeff Ober

    I have completed the meat of a reasonably complete API wrapper for Reddit. You can grab it at https://github.com/jsober/Reddit-API.

    It is pretty simple to use, and the docs are complete, but here is the gist:

    The use of new top-level namespaces is also discouraged when existing ones will suffice: https://pause.perl.org/pause/query?ACTION=pause_namingmodules#Top_level_namespaces . That's why I suggested using WebService.

    I'm a little confused as to how you are supposed to interact with retrieved links:

    my $links = $reddit->fetch_links(subreddit => '/r/perl', limit => 10);
    foreach my $current_link (@{$links->{items}}) {
        print $current_link->{'title'} ."\n";
    }
    

    That generates a whole bunch of warnings before printing the titles:

    Field distinguished is missing from package Reddit::Client::Link
     at /usr/local/share/perl/5.12.4/Reddit/Client.pm line 403
    

    Am I doing it wrong?

    Also, installation from cpan consistently fails, FYI. :)

    Any idea how i can get around this ?

    Attempt to access disallowed key 'over_18' in a restricted hash at /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.10.1/Reddit/Client/Thing.pm line 56.

    i've tried setting
    use fields qw/over_18/;
    with no success .. I blindly tried that without really understanding what it does ( sorry about that )

    Thanks
