       Amazon::S3 provides a portable client interface to Amazon Simple
       Storage System (S3).

       "Amazon S3 is storage for the Internet. It is designed to make web-
       scale computing easier for developers. Amazon S3 provides a simple web
       services interface that can be used to store and retrieve any amount of
       data, at any time, from anywhere on the web. It gives any developer
       access to the same highly scalable, reliable, fast, inexpensive data
       storage infrastructure that Amazon uses to run its own global network
       of web sites. The service aims to maximize benefits of scale and to
       pass those benefits on to developers".

       To sign up for an Amazon Web Services account, required to use this
       library and the S3 service, please visit the Amazon Web Services web
       site at

       You will be billed accordingly by Amazon when you use this module and
       must be responsible for these costs.

       This need for this module arose from some work that needed to work with
       S3 and would be distributed, installed and used on many various
       environments where compiled dependencies may not be an option.
       Net::Amazon::S3 used XML::LibXML tying it to that specific and often
       difficult to install option. In order to remove this potential barrier
       to entry, this module is forked and then modified to use XML::SAX via

       Amazon::S3 is intended to be a drop-in replacement for <Net:Amazon::S3>
       that trades some performance in return for portability.

       Create a new S3 client object. Takes some arguments:

           Use your Access Key ID as the value of the AWSAccessKeyId parameter
           in requests you send to Amazon Web Services (when required). Your
           Access Key ID identifies you as the party responsible for the

           Since your Access Key ID is not encrypted in requests to AWS, it
           could be discovered and used by anyone. Services that are not free
           require you to provide additional information, a request signature,
           to verify that a request containing your unique Access Key ID could
           only have come from you.

           YOU'LL BE SORRY.

           Set this to 1 if you want to use SSL-encrypted connections when
           talking to S3. Defaults to 0.

           Defines the time, in seconds, your script should wait or a response
           before bailing. Defaults is 30 seconds.

           Enables or disables the library to retry upon errors. This uses
           exponential backoff with retries after 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32 seconds,
           as recommended by Amazon. Defaults to off, no retries.

           Defines the S3 host endpoint to use. Defaults to

       Returns "undef" on error, else HASHREF of results:

           The owner's ID of the buckets owner.

           The name of the owner account.

           Any ARRAYREF of Amazon::SimpleDB::Bucket objects for the account.

       Takes a HASHREF:

           The name of the bucket you want to add

       acl_short (optional)
           See the set_acl subroutine for documentation on the acl_short

       Returns 0 on failure or a Amazon::S3::Bucket object on success

   bucket BUCKET
       Takes a scalar argument, the name of the bucket you're creating

       Returns an (unverified) bucket object from an account. This method does
       not access the network.

       Takes either a Amazon::S3::Bucket object or a HASHREF containing

           The name of the bucket to remove

       Returns false (and fails) if the bucket isn't empty.

       Returns true if the bucket is successfully deleted.

       List all keys in this bucket.

       Takes a HASHREF of arguments:

           REQUIRED. The name of the bucket you want to list keys on.

           Restricts the response to only contain results that begin with the
           specified prefix. If you omit this optional argument, the value of
           prefix for your query will be the empty string. In other words, the
           results will be not be restricted by prefix.

           If this optional, Unicode string parameter is included with your
           request, then keys that contain the same string between the prefix
           and the first occurrence of the delimiter will be rolled up into a
           single result element in the CommonPrefixes collection. These
           rolled-up keys are not returned elsewhere in the response.  For
           example, with prefix="USA/" and delimiter="/", the matching keys
           "USA/Oregon/Salem" and "USA/Oregon/Portland" would be summarized in
           the response as a single "USA/Oregon" element in the CommonPrefixes
           collection. If an otherwise matching key does not contain the
           delimiter after the prefix, it appears in the Contents collection.

           Each element in the CommonPrefixes collection counts as one against
           the MaxKeys limit. The rolled-up keys represented by each
           CommonPrefixes element do not.  If the Delimiter parameter is not
           present in your request, keys in the result set will not be rolled-
           up and neither the CommonPrefixes collection nor the NextMarker
           element will be present in the response.

           NOTE: CommonPrefixes isn't currently supported by Amazon::S3.

           This optional argument limits the number of results returned in
           response to your query. Amazon S3 will return no more than this
           number of results, but possibly less. Even if max-keys is not
           specified, Amazon S3 will limit the number of results in the
           response.  Check the IsTruncated flag to see if your results are
           incomplete.  If so, use the Marker parameter to request the next
           page of results.  For the purpose of counting max-keys, a 'result'
           is either a key in the 'Contents' collection, or a delimited prefix
           in the 'CommonPrefixes' collection. So for delimiter requests, max-
           keys limits the total number of list results, not just the number
           of keys.

           This optional parameter enables pagination of large result sets.
           "marker" specifies where in the result set to resume listing. It
           restricts the response to only contain results that occur
           alphabetically after the value of marker. To retrieve the next page
           of results, use the last key from the current page of results as
           the marker in your next request.

           See also "next_marker", below.

           If "marker" is omitted,the first page of results is returned.

       Returns "undef" on error and a HASHREF of data on success:

       The HASHREF looks like this:

               bucket       => $bucket_name,
               prefix       => $bucket_prefix,
               marker       => $bucket_marker,
               next_marker  => $bucket_next_available_marker,
               max_keys     => $bucket_max_keys,
               is_truncated => $bucket_is_truncated_boolean
               keys          => [$key1,$key2,...]

       Explanation of bits of that:

           B flag that indicates whether or not all results of your query were
           returned in this response. If your results were truncated, you can
           make a follow-up paginated request using the Marker parameter to
           retrieve the rest of the results.

           A convenience element, useful when paginating with delimiters. The
           value of "next_marker", if present, is the largest (alphabetically)
           of all key names and all CommonPrefixes prefixes in the response.
           If the "is_truncated" flag is set, request the next page of results
           by setting "marker" to the value of "next_marker". This element is
           only present in the response if the "delimiter" parameter was sent
           with the request.

       Each key is a HASHREF that looks like this:

               key           => $key,
               last_modified => $last_mod_date,
               etag          => $etag, # An MD5 sum of the stored content.
               size          => $size, # Bytes
               storage_class => $storage_class # Doc?
               owner_id      => $owner_id,
               owner_displayname => $owner_name

       List all keys in this bucket without having to worry about 'marker'.
       This is a convenience method, but may make multiple requests to S3
       under the hood.

       Takes the same arguments as list_bucket.

       Testing S3 is a tricky thing. Amazon wants to charge you a bit of money
       each time you use their service. And yes, testing counts as using.
       Because of this, the application's test suite skips anything
       approaching a real test unless you set these three environment

           Doesn't matter what you set it to. Just has to be set

           Your AWS access key

           Your AWS sekkr1t passkey. Be forewarned that setting this
           environment variable on a shared system might leak that information
           to another user. Be careful.
