ABSTRACT

FreeDB entry

DESCRIPTION

InfoSys::FreeDB::Entry contains information on FreeDB entries.

CONSTRUCTOR

new( [ OPT_HASH_REF ] )

Creates a new InfoSys::FreeDB::Entry object. OPT_HASH_REF is a hash reference used to pass initialization options. On error an exception Error::Simple is thrown.

Options for OPT_HASH_REF may include:

artist

Passed to set_artist().

client_comment

Passed to set_client_comment().

client_name

Passed to set_client_name().

client_version

Passed to set_client_version().

disc_length

Passed to set_disc_length().

discid

Passed to set_discid().

extd

Passed to set_extd().

genre

Passed to set_genre().

revision

Passed to set_revision().

title

Passed to set_title().

track

Passed to set_track(). Must be an ARRAY reference.

year

Passed to set_year().

new_from_array_ref(ARRAY_REF)

Creates a new InfoSys::FreeDB::Entry object from the specified array reference. ARRAY_REF is an array reference containing the lines of the entry file. On error an exception Error::Simple is thrown.

new_from_cdparanoia([ DEVICE ])

Creates a new InfoSys::FreeDB::Entry object using cdparanoia. If specified, DEVICE is used as CD-Rom device name. Otherwise the default cdparanoia CD-Rom device is used. On error an exception Error::Simple is thrown.

new_from_fh(FILE_HANDLE)

Creates a new InfoSys::FreeDB::Entry object from the specified file handle. FILE_HANDLE is a IO::Handle object. On error an exception Error::Simple is thrown.

new_from_fn(FILE)

Creates a new InfoSys::FreeDB::Entry object from the specified file. FILE is a file name. On error an exception Error::Simple is thrown.

METHODS

exists_track(ARRAY)

Returns the count of items in ARRAY that are in the entry track list.

get_artist()

Returns the entry artist.

get_client_comment()

Returns the entry client comment.

get_client_name()

Returns the entry client name.

get_client_version()

Returns the entry client version.

get_disc_length()

Returns the entry extd.

get_genre()

Returns the entry genre.

get_revision()

Returns the entry revision.

get_title()

Returns the entry title.

get_track( [ INDEX_ARRAY ] )

Returns an ARRAY containing the entry track list. INDEX_ARRAY is an optional list of indexes which when specified causes only the indexed elements in the ordered list to be returned. If not specified, all elements are returned.

get_year()

Returns the entry year.

mk_discid()

Calculates the FreeDB disc ID and stores it through method set_discid(). Note that in the InfoSys::FreeDB::Connectionclasses the method discid() lets the FreeDB server calculate the disc ID.

The values in ARRAY must be a (sub)class of:
InfoSys::FreeDB::Entry::Track
set_num_track( NUMBER, VALUE )

Set value in the entry track list. NUMBER is the integer index which is greater than 0. VALUE is the value.

The values in ARRAY must be a (sub)class of:
InfoSys::FreeDB::Entry::Track
set_revision(VALUE)

Set the entry revision. VALUE is the value. On error an exception Error::Simple is thrown.

set_title(VALUE)
