DESCRIPTION

POE::Component::SmokeBox::Uploads::RSS is a POE component that alerts newly uploaded CPAN distributions. It obtains this information from polling an RSS feed ( by default http://search.cpan.org/uploads.rdf.

POE::Component::RSSAggregator is used to handle the RSS feed monitoring and POE::Component::Client::HTTP used to obtain the full author path for each new upload.

CONSTRUCTOR

spawn

Takes a number of parameters:

  'event', the event handler in your session where each new upload alert should be sent, mandatory;

The 'session' parameter is only required if you wish the output event to go to a different session than the calling session, or if you have spawned the poco outside of a session.

Returns an object.

METHODS

session_id

shutdown

Terminates the component.

INPUT EVENTS

OUTPUT EVENTS

An event will be triggered for each new CPAN upload. The event will have ARG0 set to the path of the upload:

  B/BI/BINGOS/POE-Component-SmokeBox-Uploads-RSS-0.01.tar.gz

Suitable for feeding to the smoke tester of your choice.
