SYNOPSIS

In a perl program :

 my $r = PlugAuth::Client->new;

 # Check auth server status and version
 my $check = $r->status;
 my $version = $r->version;

 # Authenticate user "alice", pw "sesame"
 $r->login("alice", "sesame");
 if ($r->auth) {
    print "authentication succeeded\n";
 } else {
    print "authentication failed\n";
 }

 # Authorize "alice" to "POST" to "/board"
 if ($r->authz("alice","POST","board")) {
     print "authorization succeeded\n";
 } else {
     print "authorization failed\n";
 }
