NAME

WWW::Search::AltaVista::Intranet - class for searching via AltaVista Search Intranet 2.3

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



  use WWW::Search;
  my $oSearch = new WWW::Search(AltaVista::Intranet,
                                (_host => copper, _port => 9000),);
  my $sQuery = WWW::Search::escape_query("+investment +club");
  $oSearch->native_query($sQuery);
  while (my $oResult = $oSearch->next_result())
    { print $oResult->url, "\n"; }



DESCRIPTION

This class implements a search on AltaVista’s Intranet (AVI) Search.

This class exports no public interface; all interaction should be done through WWW::Search objects.

NOTES

If your query includes characters outside the 7-bit ascii, you must tell AVI how to interpret 8-bit characters. Add an option for ’enc’ to the native_query() call:



  $oSearch->native_query(WWW::Search::escape_query(Zuerich),
                         { enc => iso88591},
                        );



Hopefully the correct values for various languages can be found in the AVI documentation (sorry, I haven’t looked).

TESTING

There is no standard built-in test mechanism for this module, because very few users of WWW::Search will have AVI installed on their intranet. (How’s that for an excuse? ;-)
