NAME

Win32::IEFavorites - handles Internet Explorer's Favorites

SYNOPSIS

  use Win32::IEFavorites;

  my @items = Win32::IEFavorites->find('*del.icio.us');
  foreach my $item (@items) {
    print $item->url,"\n";
  }

DESCRIPTION

This module is to handle Internet Explorer's Favorites items (Internet shortcuts). For now it only can grab shortcuts and provide their properties (url, modified, iconfile, iconindex). You may want to use this with some aggregator like Plagger.

CLASS METHODS

folder

Returns your IE's Favorites folder.

find ( some rules )

Returns your IE's Favorites as an array of ::Item objects. Each object has url, modified, iconfile, iconindex properties. Also accepts File::Find::Rule's matching rules for ->name(). The default rule is '*.url' (matches every favorite items).

CAVEATS FOR JAPANESE USERS

You *can* use shiftjis characters for matching rules as well, though you might want to wrap it with quotemeta (or qr/\Q ... \E/) to avoid the notorious 0x5c (\) problem.
