WebService::AbuseIPDB::ReportResponse - Specific class for responses to the report method of WebService::AbuseIPDB.


The report method of WebService::AbuseIPDB will return an object of this class. It is a subclass of the generic WebService::AbuseIPDB::Response class.

    use WebService::AbuseIPDB;

    my $ipdb = WebService::AbuseIPDB->new (key => 'abc123...');
    my $res = $ipdb->report (ip => '', categories => [3],
        comment => 'Over 3000 attacks in the last hour');
    unless ($res->successful) {
        for my $err (@{$res->errors}) {
            warn "Error $err->{status}: $err->{detail}\n";
        die "Cannot continue.\n";
    printf "%s has a score of %i\n", $res->ip, $res->score;


The new, successful and errors methods are inherited from WebService::AbuseIPDB::Response. All other methods are accessors as listed here.


Returns the abuse score as an integer between 0 and 100 inclusive.


Returns the IP address itself as a string.


This is currently alpha software. Be aware that both the internals and the interface are liable to change.
