Data::Microformat::hFeed - A module to parse and create hFeeds


    use Data::Microformat::hFeed;

    my $feed = Data::Microformat::hFeed->parse($a_web_page);

	print "Feed title is ".$feed->title;
	print "Feed author is ".$feed->author->fullname;	
	foreach my $entry ($feed->entries) {
		print $entry->title."\n";

	# Create a new feed from scratch
	my $feed = Data::Microformat::hFeed->new;
	$feed->title("A feedtitle");
	$feed->tagline("Some pithy tagline");
	$feed->description("Somebody did something");
	$feed->copyright({ href => $url, text => 'Some licence' });
	foreach my $category (qw(cat1 cat2 cat3)) {


An hFeed is a microformat used to contain hEntries.

This module exists both to parse existing hFeeds from web pages, and to create
new hFeeds so that they can be put onto the Internet.

To use it to parse an existing hFeed (or hFeeds), simply give it the content
of the page containing them (there is no need to first eliminate extraneous
content, as the module will handle that itself):

    my $feed = Data::Microformat::hFeed->parse($content);

If you would like to get all the feeds on the webpage, simply ask using an

    my @feeds = Data::Microformat::hFeed->parse($content);

To create a new hFeed, first create the new object:

    my $feed = Data::Microformat::hFeed->new;

Then use the helper methods to add any data you would like. When you're ready
to output in the hFeed HTML format, simply write

    my $output = $feed->to_html;

And $output will be filled with an hFeed representation, using <div> tags
exclusively with the relevant class names.


=head2 class_name

=head2 singular_fields

This is a method to list all the fields on an address that can hold exactly one value.

=head2 plural_fields

This is a method to list all the fields on an address that can hold multiple values.

=head2 Data::Microformat::organization->from_tree($tree [, $source_url])

This method overrides but provides the same functionality as the
method of the same name in L<Data::Microformat>, with the optional
addition of $source_url. If present, this latter term will set the link
and the base of the feed automatically.

=head2 author

The author of this feed. Returns a L<Data::Microformat::hCard|Data::Microformat::hCard> object.

=head2 geo

The geo location information for this feed. Returns a L<Data::Microformat::geo|Data::Microformat::geo> object.
