NAME

Net::Trackback - an object-oriented interface for developing Trackback clients and servers,

CONTENTS

DESCRIPTION

This package is an object-oriented interface for developing Trackback clients and servers.

I take no credit for the genius of TrackBack. Initially this module’s code was derived from the standalone reference implementation release by Ben and Mena Trott. My motivation in developing this module is to make experimentation and implementation of TrackBack functions a bit easier.

As of version 0.99, the interface has been overhauled and refined from the very crude original alpha release of 0.2x and is not backwards compatable in the least.

METHODS

This module contains two exportable utility methods for working with XML.
encode_xml($string) A simple utility for encoding XML’s five named entities from text.
decode_xml($string) A simple utility for encoding XML’s five named entities into text.

    Deprecated

Net::Trackback->is_data($object) Tests if the object is a Net::Trackback::Data object. Returns a boolean value.
Net::Trackback->is_ping($object) Tests if the object is a Net::Trackback::Ping object. Returns a boolean value.
Net::Trackback->is_message($object) Tests if the object is a Net::Trackback::Message object. Returns a boolean value.
