Parcel::Track - Driver-based API for tracking parcel


version 0.005


    # Create a tracker
    my $tracker = Parcel::Track->new( 'KR::Test', '64537-0301-2020' );

    # ID & URI
    print $tracker->id . "\n";
    print $tracker->uri . "\n";
    # Track the information
    my $result = $tracker->track;
    # Get the information what you want.
    if ( $result ) {
        print "$result->{from}\n";
        print "$result->{to}\n";
        print "$result->{result}\n";
        print "$_\n" for @{ $result->{descs} };
        print "$_\n" for @{ $result->{htmls} };
    else {
        print "Failed to track information\n";


Parcel::Track is intended to provide a driver-based single API for tracking parcel information. The intent is to provide a single API against which to write the code to track the parcel information.

Parcel::Track drivers are installed seperately.

The design of this module is almost stolen from SMS::Send.



Returns loaded driver object. You can access attributes and methods of specific driver.

    $tracker = Parcel::Track->new( 'MyDriver', '123-456-789-012',
        _username => 'keedi',
        _password => 'keedi',
    $tracker->driver->username; # NOT _username BUT username
    $tracker->driver->password; # NOT _password BUT password
    $tracker->driver->foo( $dummy1 );
    $tracker->driver->bar( $dummy2, $dummy3 );



    # The most basic tracker
    $tracker = Parcel::Track->new( 'Test', '123-456-789-012' );
    # Indicate regional driver with ::
    $tracker = Parcel::Track->new( 'KR::Test', '123-456-789-012' );
    # Pass arbitrary params to the driver
    $tracker = Parcel::Track->new( 'MyDriver', '123-456-789-012',
        _username => 'keedi',
        _password => 'keedi',

The new constructor creates a new Parcel tracker.

It takes as its first parameter a driver name. These names map the class names. For example driver "Test" matches the testing driver Parcel::Track::Test.

It takes as its second parameter a tracking number.

Any additional params should be key/value pairs, split into two types.

Params without a leading underscore are "public" options and relate to standardised features within the Parcel::Track API itself. At this time, there are no usable public options.

Params with a leading underscore are "private" driver-specific options and will be passed through to the driver without the underscore.

    $tracker = Parcel::Track->new( 'MyDriver', '123-456-789-012',
        _username => 'keedi',
        _password => 'keedi',
    $tracker->driver->username; # NOT _username BUT username
    $tracker->driver->password; # NOT _password BUT password

Returns a new Parcel::Track object, or dies on error.


Returns tracking number.


Returns official link to track parcel.


Returns HASHREF which contains information of tracking the parcel.

    my $tracker = Parcel::Track->new( 'KR::Test', '64537-0301-2020' );
    my $info = $tracker->track;
    print "$info->{from}\n";
    print "$info->{to}\n";
    print "$info->{result}\n";
    print "$_\n" for @{ $info->{htmls} };
    print "$_\n" for @{ $info->{descs} };

HASHREF MUST contain following key and value pairs.

  • from: SCALAR.

  • to: SCALAR.

  • result: SCALAR.

  • htmls: ARRAYREF.

  • descs: ARRAYREF.
