NAME

WWW::Shorten::SnipURL - Perl interface to SnipURL.com

SYNOPSIS

  use WWW::Shorten::SnipURL;

  use WWW::Shorten 'SnipURL';

  $short_url = makeashorterlink($long_url);

  $long_url  = makealongerlink($short_url);

DESCRIPTION

A Perl interface to the web service SnipURL.com. SnipURL maintains a database of long URLs, each of which has a unique identifier or nickname. For more features, please visit http://snipurl.com/features

Functions

The function makeashorterlink will call the SnipURL web site passing it your long URL and will return the shorter SnipURL version. If used in a list context, then it will return both the Snip URL and the password.

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

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

EXPORT

makeashorterlink, makealongerlink
