Bug#145603: ITP: libastro-ads-perl -- Modules for querying the Astrophysics Data System

Package: wnpp
Version: N/A; reported 2002-05-02
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : libastro-ads-perl
  Version         : 1.2.0
  Upstream Author : Alasdair Allan <aa@astro.ex.ac.uk>

  Description     : Modules for querying the Astrophysics Data System

 The Astro::ADS module is an object orientated Perl interface to the
 Astrophysics Data System (ADS - http://adswww.harvard.edu/) abstract
 service. The ADS is a NASA-funded project whose main resource is an
 Abstract Service, which includes four sets of abstracts: 1) astronomy
 and astrophysics, containing 719,449 abstracts; 2) instrumentation,
 containing 608,834 abstracts; 3) physics and geophysics, containing
 1,079,814 abstracts; and 4) Los Alamos preprint server, containing
 4,104 abstracts. Each dataset can be searched by author, object name
 (astronomy only), title, or abstract text words.

 As this is an early release of the module only minimal query
 functionality is included, however all the backend interaction with
 the ADS server is in place and additional functionality (e.g. adding
 weights and scoring) should be along shortly.
