WWW::CNic::NG(3) a next generation interface to WWW:CNic.


        use WWW::CNic::NG;
        use strict;
        my $cnic = WWW::CNic::NG->new(
                'username'      => 'H12345',
                'password'      => 'password',
                'test'          => 1, # run against the test database
        # $response is a WWW::CNic::Response submodule:
        my $response = $cnic->whois('domain' => 'example.uk.com');


"WWW::CNIC::NG" provides a simpler and more consistent interface to the "WWW::CNIC" module. It allows you to reuse the same object for multiple API calls, and provides Toolkit commands as methods of the object.

Executing Toolkit Commands

If you have used "WWW:CNic" you will be familiar with using it like so:

        my $query = WWW::CNic->new(
                'command'       => 'whois',
                'username'      => 'H12345',
                'password'      => 'password',
                'domain'        => 'example.uk.com',
        # $response is a WWW::CNic::Response submodule:
        my $response = $query->execute;

This is somewhat cumbersome compared to the earlier example. "WWW::CNIC::NG" serves to tidy up some of this mess.

Instead of specifying the desired command as a parameter supplied to the constructor, you simply call the method you want to use on the "WWW::CNIC::NG" object. The method's parameters are then used to prepare a query, and the response from the server is returned from the method.
