Sending email

I was looking to send email with attachments via a script and all I needed was MIME::Lite. It apparently has a high priority (at least with Mandriva) so I didn't have to install it. While I got introduced to it on the Sending E-mail with Perl page, I also needed the CPAN manual to flesh my solution out.

Web Basics with LWP
"This article offers a sampling of recipes that let you perform common tasks with LWP."

Related: LWP : UserAgent documentation, Perl & LWP online book

...finally gave cpan a try, "perl -MCPAN -e 'install LWP::UserAgent'" or "perl -MCPAN -e shell" > install LWP::UserAgent. I like synaptic better (LWP is in perl-libwww pkg) .

Perl One liners
"Example perl one liners for command line use, a summary of important perl command line arguments, and how to convert between 1-liners and full Perl scripts."

I was trying to figure out an easy way to test a regular expression and Jeremy had the answer (probably pretty basic but I'm shy around the command line), e.g.

$ echo 1080:0:0:0:8:800:200C:417A | perl -ple 's/:[0:]+:/::/'

Columns by Randal
Linux Magazine, Perl Journal, SysAdmin Magazine and WebTechniques Magazine articles by Randal L. Schwartz. Lots of good stuff from the (co)author of Learning Perl, Learning Perl Objects and Programming Perl.

In one article he has "a trick to get an expression evaluated inside a double-quoted string" that I had a hard time finding again (the reason I'm putting it here).
