NAME

WWW::Myspace::FriendChanges - Track additions/deletions to your friends list

VERSION

Version 0.04

SYNOPSIS

Returns a list of friends that have been added or deleted since the last run.

        use WWW::Myspace;
    use WWW::Myspace::FriendChanges;

        my $myspace = new WWW::Myspace;

    my $foo = WWW::Myspace::FriendChanges->new( $myspace );

        OR
        
        my $foo = WWW::Myspace::FriendChanges->new( $myspace, $cache_file )

        # Get the list of deleted friends.
        @deleted_friends = $foo->deleted_friends;
        
        # Get the list of new friends
        @added_friends = $foo->added_friends;
        
        # Write the current friend list into the cache file.
        $foo->write_cache;

METHODS

new

The new method requires 1 argument (a WWW::Myspace object), and takes an optional second argument, a filename for the cache file. The cache file defaults to "friendcache" in the WWW::Myspace cache_dir. You can set it using the "new" method or using the "cache_file" method.

set_cache_file( filename )

Sets the cache file. You should use "cache_file" instead. This method is only for backwards compatibility.

cache_file

Sets or returns the current cache filename.

        my $cache_file = $friend_changes->cache_file;

        print $cache_file;

"filename" is used as the file from/to which we read/write the list of friends. Setting the cache filename also clears the internal last_friends list.

write_cache

Writes out the current list of friends to the cache file.

deleted_friends

Returns a list of the IDs of friends that have disappeared since the last cache list was saved. The first time it's called it searches the friends lists and caches the list of deleted friends within the object data.

        Usage:
        
        use WWW::Myspace;
        use WWW::Myspace::FriendChanges;
        
        my $myspace = new WWW::Myspace;
        my $friend_changes = new FriendChanges( $myspace );

        my @deleted_friends = $friend_changes->deleted_friends;

added_friends

Returns a list of the IDs of friends that have been added since the last cache list was saved.
