I have written a module which allows the easy automation of common PerlMonks tasks, such as polling for updates in the chatterbox, checking your XP stats, and sending messages to the chatterbox. The module and some fully functional example programs are available on my web site. Please view the README file first. Please be aware that this is just a first draft, and very much a work in progress. I welcome any comments, suggestions, criticisms, and any other form of feedback you care to give. Just /msg me here on PerlMonks.
update (broquaint): updated "web site" address
