Net::Amazon::Request - Baseclass for requests to Amazon's web service
my $req = Net::Amazon::Request::XXX->new(
[ type => 'heavy', ]
[ page => $start_page, ]
[ mode => $mode, ]
[ offer => 'All', ]
[ sort => $sort_type, ]
Don't use this class directly, use derived classes (like Net::Amazon::Request::ASIN, Net::Amazon::Request::Wishlist etc.) instead to specify the type of request and its parameters.
However, there's a bunch of parameters to the constructor that all request types have in common, here they are:
Defaults to heavy, but can be set to lite if no reviews etc. on a product are wanted. Some fields (e.g. isbn) are not going to be available in lite mode, though.
Defaults to books, but can be set to other catalog values.
Defaults to 1, but can be set to a different number to start with a different result page. Used in conjunction with the max_pages parameter of the Net::Amazon object. page is the offset, max_pages is the maximum number of pages pulled in starting at page.
Defaults to +salesrank, but search results can be sorted in various ways, depending on the type of product returned by the search. Search results may be sorted by the following criteria:
Alphabetical (A-Z and Z-A)
Price (High to Low and Low to High)
Publication or Release Date
Average Customer Review
Consult Net::Amazon::Request::Sort for details.
To receive values for the fields CollectibleCount, NumberOfOfferings, UsedCount, specify offer => "All".
offer => "All"
