NAME

Net::PublicSuffixList - The Mozilla Public Suffix List

SYNOPSIS

        use Net::PublicSuffixList;

        my $psl = Net::PublicSuffixList->new;

        my $host = 'amazon.co.uk';

        # get all the suffixes in host (like, uk and co.uk)
        my $suffixes = $psl->suffixes_in( $host );

        # get the longest suffix
        my $suffix   = $psl->longest_suffix_in( $host );

        my $hash     = $psl->split_host( $host );

DESCRIPTION

I mostly wrote this because I was working on App::url and needed a way to figure out which part of a URL was the registered part and with was the top-level domain.

The Public Suffix List is essentially a self-reported collection of the top-level, generic, country code, or whatever domains.

new

Create the new object and specify how you'd like to get the data. The network file is about 220Kb, so you might want to fetch it once, store it, and then use local_path to use it.

The constructor first tries to use a local file. If you've disabled that with no_local or the file doesn't exist, it moves on to trying the network. If you've disabled the network with no_net, then it complains but still returns the object. You can still construct your own list with add_suffix.

Possible keys:

        list_url    # the URL for the suffix list
        local_path  # the path to a local file that has the suffix list
        no_net      # do not use the network
        no_local    # do not use a local file
        cache_dir   # location to save the fetched file
defaults

A hash of the default values for everything.

parse_list( STRING_REF )

Take a scalar reference to the contents of the public suffix list, find all the suffices and add them to the object.

add_suffix( STRING )

Add STRING to the known public suffices. This returns the object itself.

Before this adds the suffix, it strips off leading * and .* characters. Some sources specify *.foo.bar, but this adds foo.bar.

remove_suffix( STRING )

Remove the STRING as a known public suffices. This returns the object itself.

suffix_exists( STRING )

Return the invocant if the suffix exists, and the empty list otherwise.

suffixes_in( HOST )

Return an array reference of the publix suffixes in HOST, sorted from shortest to longest.

longest_suffix_in( HOST )

Return the longest public suffix in HOST.

split_host( HOST )

Returns a hash reference with these keys:

        host    the input value
        suffix  the longest public suffix
    short   the input value with the public suffix
              (and leading dot) removed
fetch_list_from_local

Fetch the public suffix list plaintext file from the path returned by local_path. Returns a scalar reference to the text of the raw UTF-8 octets.

fetch_list_from_net

Fetch the public suffix list plaintext file from the URL returned by url. Returns a scalar reference to the text of the raw UTF-8 octets.

If you've set cache_dir in the object, this method attempts to cache the response in that directory using default_local_file as the filename. This cache is different than local_file although you can use it as local_file.

url

Return the configured URL for the public suffix list.

default_url

Return the default URL for the public suffix list.

local_path

Return the configured local path for the public suffix list.

default_local_path

Return the default local path for the public suffix list.

local_file

Return the configured filename for the public suffix list.

default_local_file

Return the default filename for the public suffix list.
