Net::Amazon::Request::EAN(3) request class for EAN search


use Net::Amazon;
use Net::Amazon::Request::EAN;
my $ua = Net::Amazon->new(
token => 'YOUR_AMZN_TOKEN'
my $req = Net::Amazon::Request::EAN->new(
ean => '5035822647633',
# Response is of type Net::Amazon::Response::EAN
my $resp = $ua->request($req);


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

The EAN number to search for is specified in the "EAN" parameter.

Upon success, the response's "properties()" method will return a single "Net::Amazon::Property" object.

According to the Amazon E-Commerce Service Developer's Guide (2007-01-15) EAN searches are only valid in DE, JP, and CA only. This is patently false. I think this is a documenation bug, and is actually for valid for non-US only.


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