WWW::Search::Null::Count(3) class for testing WWW::Search clients


use WWW::Search;
my $iCount = 4;
my $oSearch = new WWW::Search('Null::Count',
'_null_count' => $iCount,
$oSearch->native_query('Makes no difference what you search for...');
my @aoResults = $oSearch->results;
# ...You get $iCount results.


This class is a specialization of WWW::Search that returns some hits, but no error message. The number of hits returned can be controlled by adding a '_null_count' hash entry onto the call to WWW::Search::new(). The default is 5.

This module might be useful for testing a client program without actually being connected to any particular search engine.
