NAME

WWW::Ohloh::API::Languages - a set of Ohloh languages

SYNOPSIS

    use WWW::Ohloh::API;
    use WWW::Ohloh::API::Languages;

    my $ohloh = WWW::Ohloh::API( api_key => $key );

    my $languages = $ohloh->get_languages( sort => 'code' );

    while ( my $l = $languages->next ) {
        print $l->nice_name;
    }

DESCRIPTION

W::O::A::Languages returns a list of languages known to Ohloh.

The object doesn't retrieve all languages from the Ohloh server in one go, but rather fetch them in small groups as required. If you want to download all languages at the same time, you can use the all() method:

    my @langs = $ohloh->get_languages( sort => 'code' )->all;

METHODS

new( %args )

Creates a new W::O::A::Languages object. It accepts the following arguments:

Arguments

ohloh => $ohloh

Mandatory. Its value is the WWW::Ohloh::API object that will be used to query the Ohloh server.

max => $nbr_languages

The maximum number of languages the set will contain. If you want to slurp'em all, set it to 'undef' (which is the default).

all

Returns the retrieved languages' information as WWW::Ohloh::API::Language objects.

next( $n )

Returns the next $n language (or all remaining languages if there are less than $n), or undef if there is no more languages to retrieve. After it returned undef, subsequent calls to next will reset the list. If $n is not given, defaults to 1 entry.

max

Returns the maximum number of languages the object will return, or undef if no maximum has been set.

total_entries

Returns the number of entries selected by the query.

Beware: this number can change during the life of the object! Each time the object retrieves a new batch of entries, this number is updated with the value returned by the Ohloh server, which could differ from its last invication is entries have been added or removed since the last retrieval.
