NAME

       HTTP::OAI::UserAgent - Extension of the LWP::UserAgent for OAI HTTP requests

DESCRIPTION

       This module provides a simplified mechanism for making requests to an OAI repository,
       using the existing LWP::UserAgent module.

SYNOPSIS

               require HTTP::OAI::UserAgent;

               my $ua = new HTTP::OAI::UserAgent;

               my $response = $ua->request(
                       baseURL=>'http://arXiv.org/oai1',
                       verb=>'ListRecords',
                       from=>'2001-08-01',
                       until=>'2001-08-31'
               );

               print $response->content;

METHODS

       $ua = new HTTP::OAI::UserAgent(proxy=>'www-cache',...)
           This constructor method returns a new instance of a HTTP::OAI::UserAgent module. All
           arguments are passed to the LWP::UserAgent constructor.

       $r = $ua->request($req)
           Requests the HTTP response defined by $req, which is a HTTP::Request object.

       $r = $ua->request(baseURL=>$baseref, verb=>$verb, %opts)
           Makes an HTTP request to the given OAI server (baseURL) with OAI arguments. Returns an
           HTTP::Response object.

           OAI-PMH related options:

                   from => $from
                   until => $until
                   resumptionToken => $token
                   metadataPrefix => $mdp
                   set => $set

       $time_d = $ua->delay( $time_d )
           Return and optionally set a time (in seconds) to wait between requests. $time_d may be
           a CODEREF.
