Simple send ICQ messages

by myuserid7 (Scribe)
on Sep 24, 2009 at 21:47 UTC ( #797336=perlquestion: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

myuserid7 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:


I have a task of simple:

-connect to icq server
-authorize there
-send some messages in cycle (not spam!)

I don't know which CPAN module I need to use or need I to use it at all because of it's callback architecture, I can't send messages in cycle (simple foreach while fetching data from database).

Any ideas and code examples are welcome,

    One idea springs immediately to mind - remove the <pre> tags and insert <code> tags around the code! Did the preview not look somewhat odd to you ?

    A user level that continues to overstate my experience :-))

    Net::ICQ was updated in 2001, how can it be working now? I've tried Net::ICQ, Net::AIM, Net::OSCAR the only working was Net::OSCAR, but I can use it because of it's callback architecture... any useful ideas?
      Why is that a problem? You can always put it in a child thread or process.
