Weather::Com::Forecast - class representing all available weather forecasts for one location


  my @locations = $weather_finder->find('Heidelberg');

  my $forecast = $locations[0]->forecast();
  my $tomorrow = $forecast->day(1);

  print "Forecast for tomorrow:\n";
  print " - tomorrow it's the ", $tomorrow->date()->date(), "\n";  
  print " - sunrise will be at ", $tomorrow->sunrise()->time(), "\n";  
  print " - maximum temperature will be ", $tomorrow->high(), "\n";  


Using Weather::Com::Forecast objects is the way to access weather forecast information for one specific location (city) and 0 (today) to 9 days in the future.

Each time you call the Weather::Com::Location objects' forecast() method, you'll get an updated Weather::Com::Forecast object. This object is used to access the 10 Weather::Com::DayForecast objects containing the actual data.


new(hash or hashref)

You usually would not construct an object of this class yourself. This is implicitely done when you call the forecast() method of a Weather::Com::Location object.



Returns an arrayref of all Weather::Com::DayForecast objects if called in scalar context, an array if called in list context.

day(day number)

Returns the Weather::Com::DayForecast object that corresponds to the day number you provided.

The day number can be any number between 0 and 9.

Day 0 is usually today. Due to a bug (I think it is one) in the XOAP API, you may get the full forecast data of yesterday if you call for day 0 just after midnight. I think this may have do something with the timezone. I have not fully investigated this issue, yet. Please contact me, if you have!
