Dezi::Bot::Utils - web crawler utilities


 use Dezi::Bot::Utils;
 my $path = Dezi::Bot::Utils::file_cache_path( $base, $file );
 # $path isa Path::Class::File object


The Dezi::Bot::Utils provides utility functions for Dezi::Bot.


file_cache_path( base, file )

Returns a Path::Class::File object for file under base directory path. Up to two subdirectory levels are created between base and file in order to spread out the file hierarchy, similar to File::Cache pattern.

update_or_insert( dbix_inserthash, args )

Takes same args as DBIx::InsertHash->update() but will make educated guess at whether to insert or update the data.

Returns the row id if insert() was called, otherwise returns hash ref of the updated row.
