WWW::Shorten::SnipURL(3) Perl interface to SnipURL.com


A Perl interface to the web service SnipURL.com. SnipURL maintains a database of long URLs, each of which has a unique identifier or nickname. For more features, please visit http://snipurl.com/features

The function "makeashorterlink" will call the SnipURL web site passing it your long URL and will return the shorter SnipURL version. If used in a list context, then it will return both the Snip URL and the password.

The function "makealongerlink" does the reverse. "makealongerlink" will accept as an argument either the full Snip URL or just the SnipURL identifier.

If anything goes wrong, then either function will return "undef".


makeashorterlink, makealongerlink
