NAME

Mobile::Libwurfl::Device - Device perl wrapper to wurfl_device_handle

(Perl bindings for the wurfl commercial library)

SYNOPSIS

  use Wurfl;
  
  $wurfl = Wurfl->new(PATH_TO_WURFL_XML_FILE);

  $device = $wurfl->lookup_useragent(USERAGENT);
  # or
  $device = $wurfl->get_device(DEVICE_ID);

  # get an hashref with all known capabilities
  $capabilities = $device->capabilities;

  # or access a specific capability directly
  $viewport_width = $device->get_capability('viewport_width');

DESCRIPTION

Perl bindings to the commercial C library to access wurfl databases

METHODS

  • new ($wurfl, $device)

    Creates a new Device object. Both $wurfl and $device must be defined. $wurfl must point to a valid Wurfl object $device must be a valid wurfl_device_handle pointer returned by the underlying C API

  • capabilities

    Rerturns an hashref with all the known capabilities applicable to the current device

  • id

    Returns the id of the current device. The id can be used later with Mobile::Libwurfl::get_device() to obtain a new instance of this same device

  • useragent

    Returns the default useragent string for the current device

  • get_capability ($capability)

    Returns the value of the specific $capability (if it is a valid capability, undef otherwise)

  • has_capability ($capability)

    Returns true if $capability is a valid capability applicable to the current device, undef otherwise

    Note that this doesn't check the actual value of the capability (if boolean it can still be 'false') but it just checks the existance of $capability among the known capabilities

  • get_virtual_capability ($capability)

  • has_virtual_capability ($capability)

  • match_type ()

    Returns the type of match for the current device. returned value can be any of :

    WURFL_MATCH_TYPE_EXACT WURFL_MATCH_TYPE_CONCLUSIVE WURFL_MATCH_TYPE_RECOVERY WURFL_MATCH_TYPE_CATCHALL WURFL_MATCH_TYPE_HIGHPERFORMANCE WURFL_MATCH_TYPE_NONE WURFL_MATCH_TYPE_CACHED

    Such constants are exported by the Wurfl. Check libwurfl documentation for more details about matcher types and strings

  • matcher_name ()

    Returns the string identifying the 'matcher' which matched the current device

    Check libwurfl documentation for more details about matcher types and strings
