Can anyone give me a clue about how to use this package in perl. I have not programmed in perl in about 8 years and I forget almost everything.

onyourmark,
You should be able to use the example given in the synopsis of the CPAN page that you are referring to.
You just need to specify a user and password i.e. define $user and $password

Hi Thanks. I actually was having a little trouble figuring out which part is the example. Could you tell me which part is the example?

Hello. I tried the following code (the example). It says the ... on line 18 and on line 40 are producing errors. What do I do with those?
Also, where do I enter the username and password?
Thanks.




 use AnyEvent::Twitter::Stream;

  # receive updates from @following_ids
  my $listener = AnyEvent::Twitter::Stream->new(
      username => $user,
      password => $password,
      method   => "filter",  # "firehose" for everything, "sample" for sample timeline
      follow   => join(",", @following_ids),
      on_tweet => sub {
          my $tweet = shift;
          warn "$tweet->{user}{screen_name}: $tweet->{text}\n";
      },
      on_keepalive => sub {
          warn "ping\n";
      },
      on_delete => sub {
          my ($tweet_id, $user_id) = @_; # callback executed when twitter send a delete notification
          ...
      },
      timeout => 45,
  );

  # track keywords
  my $guard = AnyEvent::Twitter::Stream->new(
      username => $user,
      password => $password,
      method   => "filter",
      track    => "Perl,Test,Music",
      on_tweet => sub { },
  );

  # to use OAuth authentication
  my $listener = AnyEvent::Twitter::Stream->new(
      consumer_key    => $consumer_key,
      consumer_secret => $consumer_secret,
      token           => $token,
      token_secret    => $token_secret,
      method          => "filter",
      track           => "...",
      on_tweet        => sub { ... },
  );

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

just download it to csv files (continuously but the first step is just to download something). Thanks.

According to this article: http://www.businessinsider.com/twitter-stats-2010-4#twitters-users-are-doing-55-million-tweets-per-day-6 in Apr 2010, there was 55 millions tweets a day... are you really considering getting that many tweets.
I'm not even sure it's allowed to subscribe to all.

Hi. It is allowed to download 5% and that is what I was trying eventually to do but I don't know if this module assists with that or not.
