WWW::Dattebayo- Perl module for checking the Dattebayo tracker


  use WWW::Dattebayo;
  use Data::Dumper;
  my $db = WWW::Dattebayo->new();
  my $list = $db->list();
  print Dumper $list;


This module allows you to check Dattebayos torrent tracker using Perl. Its list() method will return the complete list of files and their attributes.

WWW::Dattebayo uses LWP::UserAgent as its base class. So you can use all methods from LWP::UserAgent on WWW::Dattebayo. This allows you to handle your proxies, etc... directly via LWP.

PLEASE NOTE: Thou shalt not request the list() method every minute. Dattebayo is a large fansub group and they take the internet seriously. Their release schedule is really simple. So it should be fair enough if you call the method only when you need it.


  • $db->list()

    This method will return the a hashref containing all files and attributes listed on Make sure to read the note above.
