DESCRIPTION

This module provides some functions to retrieve data from https://rt.cpan.org by scraping the web pages. Compared to RT::Client::REST, it provides less functionality but it can get public information without having to log in first.

FUNCTIONS

list_dist_active_tickets

Usage:

 list_dist_active_tickets(%args) -> [status, msg, result, meta]

List active tickets for a distribution.

This function is not exported by default, but exportable.

Arguments ('*' denotes required arguments):

Second element (msg) is a string containing error message, or 'OK' if status is 200. Third element (result) is optional, the actual result. Fourth element (meta) is called result metadata and is optional, a hash that contains extra information.
