  use Net::Amazon;
  use Net::Amazon::Request::UPC;

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

  my $req = Net::Amazon::Request::UPC->new( 
      upc  => '724381198421',

Net::Amazon::Request::UPC is a class used to submit UPC (product barcode) search requests to the Amazon web service.

The UPC number to search for is specified in the upc parameter. It currently works with the following values of the mode parameter: music, classical, software, dvd, video, vhs, electronics, pc-hardware, and photo.

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


new(upc => $upc)

Constructs a new Net::Amazon::Request::UPC object, used to query the Amazon web service for an item with the given UPC number.
