SRU::Request - Factories for creating SRU request objects.
use SRU::Request; my $request = SRU::Request->newFromURI( $uri );
SRU::Request allows you to create the appropriate SRU request object from a URI object. This allows you to pass in a URI and get back one of SRU::Request::Explain, SRU::Request::Scan or SRU::Request::SearchRetrieve depending on the type of URI that is passed in. See the docs for those classes for more information about what they contain.
new( %query | $uri | $cgi | $env ) Create a new request object which is one of: · SRU::Request::Explain · SRU::Request::Scan · SRU::Request::SearchRetrieve One can pass query parameters as hash, as URL, as URI, as CGI object or as PSGI request. If the request is not formatted properly the call will return undef. The error encountered should be available in $SRU::Error. newFromURI newFromCGI Deprecated aliases for "new". asXML() Used to generate <echoedExplainRequest>, <echoedSearchRetrieveRequest> and <echoedScanRequest> elements in the response. asURI( [ $base ] ) Creates a URI of this request. The optional "base" URL, provided as string or as URI, is set to "http://localhost/" by default. type() Returns 'searchRetrieve', 'scan' or 'explain' depending on what type of object it is.
