This module encapsulates the raw interactions with Flickr's API - the creation of an HTTP request, signing of arguments, checking of response codes, and so forth.
End users shouldn't need to use this module - instead, use the Flickr::API2 object, and call 'execute_method' on it.
Constructor - takes arguments of: key (api key) secret (api key's secret) rest_uri (which URL at flickr to use - defaults to the correct value) auth_uri (which URL at flickr for authentication - defaults to correct value)
sign_args ($secret, \%args)
Signs the given arguments with the given secret key.
request_auth_url ($perms, $frob)
URI object representing the URL that an application must redirect a user to for approving an authentication token.
For web-based applications $frob is an optional parameter.
Returns undef if a secret was not specified when creating the
Called from execute_method() to kick off the API query process. Either dies with an exception, or returns a hash-reference of the results.
Calls LWP::UserAgent's ->request method, but does so within the Retry system, in order to catch and retry timeouts.
Added by request.
