WWW::Search::Null::Count - 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.
