NAME

WebService::GData::Collection - Composite class redispatching method calls to query the items data.

SYNOPSIS

    use WebService::GData::Collection;

    #array ref of link nodes
    my $links = new WebService::GData::Collection($links);

    #search through the nodes for a certain value
    my $reponse_url = $links->rel('video.responses')->[0];
   
    #access the object as if it was an array reference
    $links->[0];
    
    #loop through it as if it was a normal array reference
    foreach my $link (@$links) {
        #$link->rel...
    }

DESCRIPTION

inherits from WebService::GData::BaseCollection

This package accepts an array reference containing identic nodes (link nodes, category nodes,video nodes...). Once feed with some data, you can call a node method by specifying a search string. The instance will simply redispatch the call to all its children and return any children that match(=~m/$search/) your query.

CONSTRUCTOR

new

    Create a Collection instance.

    Parameters

    collection:ArrayRef - (optional) an array reference of nodes or identic instances.

    Returns

    WebService::GData::Collection instance

    Example

        use WebService::GData::Collection;
        
        my $collection = new WebService::GData::Collection();
        
        $collection->[0] = new WebService::GData::Node::AuthorEntity();
        
        or
        my $collection = new WebService::GData::Collection(\@authors);     

OVERLOAD

    In order to fake array reference behavior, the array reference context is overloaded to return the actual array stored in the instance.

    Example

        use WebService::GData::Collection;
    
        my $authors = new WebService::GData::Collection(\@authors);     
        
        foreach my $author (@$authors) {
            $author->name;
        }
        
        push @$author,new WebService::GData::Node::AuthorEntity();
