        my $download_row;

        foreach my $row (@page) {
                print "Row: " . $row->{name} . "- id: " . $row->{id} ."\n";

DESCRIPTION

WWW::BitTorrent provides an object interface to using two BitTorrent based boards: TBSource, BrokenStone (tell me about more). This boards are being update every day with files. This module allows you to search for files in a couple of ways.

NOTE: any use of this module that is illegal is out of my responsibilty.

This module requires <B>LWP::UserAgentB> and <B>LWP::SimpleB>.

INTERFACE



        new( [ARGS] )

                Used to login the Board with the username and password
                of the board (all arguments are required) and create a new Object of
                the WWW::BitTorrent module.

                user- the username for login the board.
                pass- the password for login the board.

                NOTES:  Returns a blessed object anyways.
                        object->{STAT}: 0 - for error (object->{ERROR} - http code)

        browse( $page_number )

                Returns a list(array) of all rows(ref) from the the $page_number page.
                C<page_number>: number between 0 (first page) and max number of pages.

                Arguments:
       
                page_number- the number of the page you want the rows from.

                This method do the same as browse just by the search option at the board.
