Net::Amazon::Request::ISBN- request class for ISBN search


  use Net::Amazon;
  use Net::Amazon::Request::ISBN;

  my $ua = Net::Amazon->new(
      token       => 'YOUR_AMZN_TOKEN'

  my $req = Net::Amazon::Request::ISBN->new( 
      isbn => '9783570009222',

    # Response is of type Net::Amazon::Response::ISBN
  my $resp = $ua->request($req);


Net::Amazon::Request::ISBN is a class used to submit ISBN (International Standard Book Number) search requests to the Amazon web service.

The ISBN number to search for is specified in the ISBN parameter.

Upon success, the response's properties() method will return a single Net::Amazon::Property::Book object.


new(isbn => $isbn)

Constructs a new Net::Amazon::Request::ISBN object, used to query the Amazon web service for an item with the given ISBN number. As of 2007-01-17 Amazon supports 13-digit ISBNs. To construct a 13-digit ISBN from a 10-digit ISBN simply prepended 978 to the ISBN. The ISBN must not contain hyphens.

It appears that not all 10-digit ISBNs can be turned into 13-digit ISBNs by prepending 978. Amazon lists the 13-digit ISBN alongside 10-digit ISBN.
