Weather::Com::UVIndex - class containing the uv index data


  #!/usr/bin/perl -w
  use Weather::Com::Finder;

  # you have to fill in your ids from here
  my $PartnerId  = 'somepartnerid';
  my $LicenseKey = 'mylicense';

  my %weatherargs = (
        'partner_id' => $PartnerId,
        'license'    => $LicenseKey,
        'language'   => 'de',

  my $weather_finder = Weather::Com::Finder->new(%weatherargs);
  my @locations = $weather_finder->find('Heidelberg');

  my $currconditions = $locations[0]->current_conditions();

  print "The current uv index is ", $currconditions->uv_index()->index(), "\n";
  print "This is relatively ", $currconditions->uv_index()->description(), "\n";  


Via Weather::Com::UVIndex one can access the uv index and its description (whether it's high or low). An uv index is usually an object belonging to current conditions or to a forecast (not implemented yet).

This class will not be updated automatically with each call to one of its methods. You need to call the uv_index() method of the parent object again to update your object.


You usually would not construct an object of this class yourself. This is implicitely done when you call the uv_index() method of one current conditions or forecast object.



Returns the uv index (number).


Returns the description whether this index is high or low.

This description is translated if you specified the language option as argument while instantiating your Weather::Com::Finder.

This attribute is dynamic language enabled.
