use Net::Amazon;
use Net::Amazon::Request::ASIN;
my $ua = Net::Amazon->new(

"Net::Amazon::Request::ASIN" is a class used to submit ASIN requests to the Amazon web service.

The ASIN of the item to look is specified in the "asin" parameter.

Upon success, the responses' "properties()" method will return one single "Net::Amazon::Property::*" object.


new( asin => $asin )
Constructs a new "Net::Amazon::Request::ASIN" object, used to query the Amazon web service for an item with the specified ASIN number.

$asin can also be a reference to an array of ASINs, like in

    $ua->search(asin => ["0201360683", "0596005083"])

in which case a search for multiple ASINs is performed, returning a list of results.

Check Net::Amazon::Request for common request parameters not listed here.
