jcwren, this is great. Thank you for providing a mechanism for this idea.

<quote> ISBNs contain a publisher code, a country code, and a check digit in them. There is a CPAN module Business::ISBN that is useful for validating ISBN numbers, as far as being legally constructed and having a valid check digit. Alas, there is no CPAN module for interfacing to an ISBN database and returning nicely formatted data for our own purposes. </quote>

would there be some mechanism perhaps for trawling amazon or other bookseller? I think I may check that out today, actually. Does anyone have another idea? Just having the ISBN doesnt really help, I dont think. We need to go just one additional step.

feelin' groovy,
brother dep.
