hweefarn has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

hi :)

this is the php script for send email. it is so simple. how to translate it to perl?

<?php function socketmail($toArray, $subject, $message) { ini_set(sendmail_from, "chfarn@tm.net.my"); $connect = fsockopen (ini_get("SMTP"), 25, $errno, $errstr, 30) or d +ie("Could not talk to the sendmail server!"); $rcv = fgets($connect, 1024); fputs($connect, "HELO {$_SERVER['SERVER_NAME']}\r\n"); $rcv = fgets($connect, 1024); while (list($toKey, $toValue) = each($toArray)) { fputs($connect, "MAIL FROM: chfarn@tm.net.my\r\n"); $rcv = fgets($connect, 1024); fputs($connect, "RCPT TO:$toValue\r\n"); $rcv = fgets($connect, 1024); fputs($connect, "DATA\r\n"); $rcv = fgets($connect, 1024); fputs($connect, "Subject: $subject\r\n"); fputs($connect, "From: hweefarn <chfarn@tm.net.my>\r\n"); fputs($connect, "To: $toKey <$toValue>\r\n"); fputs($connect, "X-Sender: <chfarn@tm.net.my>\r\n"); fputs($connect, "Return-Path: <chfarn@tm.net.my>\r\n"); fputs($connect, "Errors-To: <chfarn@tm.net.my>\r\n"); fputs($connect, "X-Mailer: PHP\r\n"); fputs($connect, "X-Priority: 3\r\n"); fputs($connect, "Content-Type: text/plain; charset=iso-8859-1\r\n" +); fputs($connect, "\r\n"); fputs($connect, stripslashes($message)." \r\n"); fputs($connect, ".\r\n"); $rcv = fgets($connect, 1024); fputs($connect, "RSET\r\n"); $rcv = fgets($connect, 1024); } fputs ($connect, "QUIT\r\n"); $rcv = fgets ($connect, 1024); fclose($connect); ini_restore(sendmail_from); } $toArray = array("Name1" => "0122523803@sms.maxis.net.my", "Name2" => +"hweefarn@yahoo.com"); $subject = "testing php"; $message = "socket mail"; socketmail($toArray, $subject, $message); ?>
