URI::Title - get the titles of things on the web in a sensible way
use URI::Title qw( title );
my $title = title('http://microsoft.com');
print "Title is $title\n";
I keep having to find the title of things on the web. This seems like a really simple request, just get() the object, parse for a title tag, you're done. Ha, I wish. There are several problems with this approach:
So, let's solve these issues once.
only one, the title(url) method. Call it with an url, get the title if possible, undef if it wasn't. Very simple.
WWW::GetPageTitle - similar this module, but just handles web pages. The author of that module suggests you should use URI::Title.
Embedded title metadata of png files can be extracted if you have installed either Image::ExifTool or Image::PNG::Libpng.
Many, many, many things. Still unimplemented:

Invented because of a conversation with rjp, who contributed some eyeball-melting and as-yet-unused code to get titles from MP3s and PDFs, and hex, who has also solved the problem, and got bits done in a nicer way than I did.
To install URI::Title, copy and paste the appropriate command in to your terminal.
perl -MCPAN -e shell
