NAME

WWW::Shorten::IsGd - Shorten URLs using https://is.gd

SYNOPSIS

  use strict;
  use warnings;

  use WWW::Shorten::IsGd;
  # use WWW::Shorten 'IsGd';  # or, this way

  my $short_url = makeashorterlink('http://www.foo.com/some/long/url');
  my $long_url  = makealongerlink($short_url);

DESCRIPTION

A Perl interface to the web site https://is.gd/. The service simply maintains a database of long URLs, each of which has a unique identifier.

FUNCTIONS

The function makeashorterlink will call the https://is.gd web site passing it your long URL and will return the shorter version.

The function makealongerlink does the reverse. makealongerlink will accept as an argument either the full URL or just the identifier.

If anything goes wrong, then either function will return undef.
