NAME

       WWW::Search::WashPost - WWW::Search backend for searching www.washingtonpost.com

SYNOPSIS

         use WWW::Search;
         my $oSearch = new WWW::Search('WashPost');
         my $sQuery = WWW::Search::escape_query("japan prime minister");
         $oSearch->native_query($sQuery);
         while (my $oResult = $oSearch->next_result())
           { print $oResult->url, "\n"; }

DESCRIPTION

       This class is a specialization of WWW::Search.  It handles making and interpreting
       searches on news at The Washington Post http://www.washingtonpost.com.

       This class exports no public interface; all interaction should be done through WWW::Search
       objects.

NOTES

       In the resulting WWW::SearchResult objects, the following elements will be set (in
       addition to the usual title, description, etc.):

       source
           Something like "Post" or a certain "Edition".

       location
           The page number of the print edition, e.g. "E05".

       category
           The type of item found, either "Article" or "Photo".

       seller
           The author or photographer.

SEE ALSO

       To make new backends, see WWW::Search.

CAVEATS

       This backend (and all its subclasses) only searches news stories from the last 14 days.
       (This is a restriction on the Washington Post website that we can not avoid.)
