NAME

WWW::Shorten::Tinylink - Perl interface to Tinylink.com

SYNOPSIS

  # No appropriate solution

DESCRIPTION

A Perl interface to the web site Tinylink.com. Tinylink.com simply maintains a database of long URLs, each of which has a unique identifier.

Unfortunately, at some point in the middle of 2008, Tinylink.com stopped returning useable URLs and therefore this module is now deprecated.

Functions

The function makeashorterlink will call the Tinylink.com web site passing it your long URL and will return the shorter (tinylink) version.

Multiple submissions of the same URL will result in different codes being returned.

The function makealongerlink does the reverse. makealongerlink will accept as an argument either the full Tinylink URL or just the Tinylink identifier/nickname.

If anything goes wrong, then either function will return undef.

EXPORT

makeashorterlink, makealongerlink

SUPPORT, LICENCE, THANKS and SUCH
