Acme::Playmate lets you browse all of Playboy's "Playmate of the Month" (a.k.a. Centerfolds) information.

new ( YYYY, MM )

Intantiates a new playmate. Receives year and month as parameters. If the month is omitted, fetches the 'Playmate of the Year' (feature is not yet implemented). If no parameter is given, defaults to the first playmate ever (The eternal Marilyn Monroe, December 1953). Returns undef if unable to fetch information.

name, birthplace, bust, waist, hips, height, weight

I think those are self-explanatory :)


(not yet implemented)

Should return questions and answers from the Playmate's Data Sheet

Returns the Playboy's website URL for the selected Playmate's directory.


...and now your object is the Playmate of the previous month. Returns undef if there is none.


...and now your object is the Playmate of the following month. Returns undef if there is none.
