Google™ Page Rank Query Updated

About a month ago Google changed the URL used by third party queries of PageRank™. This broke my Perl program which supports PageRank queries from the command line, a Web form, or embedded in a Web page.

I have just posted an update to the Page Rank Query distribution which incorporates an updated WWW::Google::PageRank Perl module which supports the modified request URL. If you have customised my Perl program, you need not modify your page_rank.pl program; you need only replace WWW::Google::PageRank with the updated (0.17) version.

If your own Perl programs which use this module to query PageRank have broken recently, updating the Perl module on your system should fix them.
