NAME
    Net::Google - simple OOP-ish interface to the Google SOAP API

SYNOPSIS
     use Net::Google;
     use constant LOCAL_GOOGLE_KEY => "********************************";

     my $google = Net::Google->new(key=>LOCAL_GOOGLE_KEY);
     my $search = $google->search();

     # Search interface

     $search->query(qw(aaron straup cope));
     $search->lr(qw(en fr));
     $search->starts_at(5);
     $search->max_results(15);

     map { print $_->title()."\n"; } @{$search->results()};

     # or...

     foreach my $r (@{$search->response()}) {
       print "Search time :".$r->searchTime()."\n";

       # returns an array ref of Result objects
       # the same as the $search->results() method
       map { print $_->URL()."\n"; } @{$r->resultElements()};
     }

     # Spelling interface

     print $google->spelling(phrase=>"muntreal qwebec")->suggest(),"\n";

     # Cache interface

     my $cache = $google->cache(url=>"http://search.cpan.org/recent");
     print $cache->get();

DESCRIPTION
    Provides a simple OOP-ish interface to the Google SOAP API

ENCODING
    According to the Google API docs :

     "In order to support searching documents in multiple languages 
     and character encodings the Google Web APIs perform all requests 
     and responses in the UTF-8 encoding. The parameters <ie> and 
     <oe> are required in client requests but their values are ignored.
     Clients should encode all request data in UTF-8 and should expect
     results to be in UTF-8."

    (This package takes care of setting both parameters in requests.)

PACKAGE METHODS
  __PACKAGE__->new(\%args)
    Valid arguments are :

    *   key

        *string*. A Google API key.

    *   http_proxy

        *url*. A URL for proxy-ing HTTP requests.

    *   debug

        Valid options are:

        *   *boolean*

            If true prints debugging information returned by SOAP::Lite to
            STDERR

        *   *coderef*.

            Your own subroutine for munging the debugging information
            returned by SOAP::Lite.

    Note that prior to version 0.60, arguments were not passed by reference.
    Versions >= 0.60 are backwards compatible.

    Returns an object. Woot!

OBJECT METHODS
  $obj->key($string)
    Get/set the Google API key for this object.

  $obj->http_proxy($url)
    Get/set the HTTP proxy for this object.

    Returns a string.

  $obj->search(\%args)
    Valid arguments are :

    *   key

        *string*. A Google API key.

        If none is provided then the key passed to the parent *Net::Google*
        object will be used.

    *   starts_at

        *int*. First result number to display.

        Default is 0.

    *   max_results

        *int*. Number of results to return.

        Default is 10.

    *   lr

        *string* or *array reference*. Language restrictions.

    *   safe

        *boolean*.

    *   filter

        *boolean*.

    *   http_proxy

        *url*. A URL for proxy-ing HTTP requests.

    *   debug

        Valid options are:

        *   *boolean*

            If true prints debugging information returned by SOAP::Lite to
            STDERR

        *   *coderef*

            Your own subroutine for munging the debugging information
            returned by SOAP::Lite.

    Note that prior to version 0.60, arguments were not passed by reference.
    Versions >= 0.60 are backwards compatible.

    Returns a *Net::Google::Search* object. Woot!

    Returns undef if there was an error.

  $obj->spelling(\%args)
    Valid arguments are:

    *   key

        *string*. A Google API key.

        If none is provided then the key passed to the parent *Net::Google*
        object will be used.

    *   phrase

        *string* or *array reference*.

    *   http_proxy

        *url*. A URL for proxy-ing HTTP requests.

    *   debug

        *   boolean

            Prints debugging information returned by SOAP::Lite to STDERR

        *   coderef

            Your own subroutine for munging the debugging information
            returned by SOAP::Lite.

        If no option is defined then the debug argument passed to the parent
        *Net::Google* object will be used.

    Note that prior to version 0.60, arguments were not passed by reference.
    Versions >= 0.60 are backwards compatible.

    Returns a *Net::Google::Spelling* object. Woot!

    Returns undef if there was an error.

  $obj->cache(\%args)
    Valid arguments are :

    *   key

        String. Google API key.

        If none is provided then the key passed to the parent *Net::Google*
        object will be used.

    *   url

        *string*

    *   http_proxy

        *url*. A URL for proxy-ing HTTP requests.

    *   debug

        Valid options are:

        *   *boolean*

            If true, prints debugging information returned by SOAP::Lite to
            STDERR

        *   *coderef*

            Your own subroutine for munging the debugging information
            returned by SOAP::Lite.

        If no option is defined then the debug argument passed to the parent
        *Net::Google* object will be used.

    Note that prior to version 0.60, arguments were not passed by reference.
    Versions >= 0.60 are backwards compatible.

    Returns a *Net::Google::Cache* object. Woot!

    Returns undef if there was an error.

  $obj->queries_exhausted()
    Returns true or false depending on whether or not the current in-memory
    session has exhausted the Google API 1000 query limit.

TO DO
    *   Tickle the tests so that they will pass on systems without
        Test::More.

    *   Add tests for filters.

    *   Add some sort of functionality for managing multiple keys. Sort of
        like what is describe here :

        http://aaronland.net/weblog/archive/4204

        This will probably happen around the time Hell freezes over so if
        you think you can do it faster, go nuts.
