Dear Astro::ADS author, I would like to query the PRE database (instead of the default AST database) for arXIV papers using: Astro::ADS::Query Astro::ADS::Result::Paper Astro::ADS::Result I apologize since this is not a bug, but a request. Please advise, best regards, Doug van Orsow -- ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Doug van Orsow (Vantage Systems, Inc.)

Hi Doug, Funny you should ask that. I was given the answer to that just last week. It's hardcoded in on line 660 of Query.pm ${$self->{OPTIONS}}{"db_key"} = "AST"; I believe PRE will just look at the pre-prints, whereas ALL will search all databases (it's the one I'm using now). I'm a little uncertain of how I should proceed as module maintainer. The API for ADS is changing and this interface will be dropped at some future date. I've got a thesis to submit this year, so I'm planning on writing a module for the new API in 2015. I was considering just freezing development of this module. Do you have any opinion on the matter? cheers, Boyd Duffee On 20 June 2014 01:21, Van Orsow, Doug J.[INNOVIM] via RT < bug-Astro-ADS@rt.cpan.org> wrote: Show quoted text

Hi Boyd, Thanks for the quick response. Yes, it is a funny coincidence how this same question came up for you recently. Maybe another "bibliographer" from another archive asked you about it? In any case, I also saw that one-line option of setting the db_key to AST, so just wondered if it could easily be changed to PRE in order to access the pre-print ADS archive? Does setting it to ALL actually access the PRE archive as well, or just other databases of AST? Glad to hear you are busy with a thesis, and planning to write a new module for next year. I do have a workaround for my request, by just plugging my monthly list of arXiv bibcodes into to the ADS search page. It just involves some extra editing work on my part, that the modules would do for me. So unless there is an easy way to change (as if it's ever easy) the options for db_key, I think freezing development of this module is fine.

I was the person who needed the answer. I am not the module author. I took over maintaining it when the original author moved on to other things and the process has been an education in writing software. I would suggest that you change the line from AST to ALL. That will search the PRE, AST and any other database they have configured. best of luck, Boyd On 20 June 2014 14:36, Van Orsow, Doug J.[INNOVIM] via RT < bug-Astro-ADS@rt.cpan.org> wrote: Show quoted text
