Description: An update to the wonderful script posted by jeffa. This script brings the older one up to date with the new scratchpad system. I also fixed the "login error" detection to hopefully make it less error prone. I added a 'public' option to enable a simple switch to make any content posted to the scratchpad public or private.

=head1 NAME

sp_poster.pl - retrieves and/or updates user's scratchpad

=head1 SYNOPSIS

sp_poster.pl -file [-user -pass -append -prepend -code]

 Options:
   -user    -u        user's name
   -pass    -p        user's password
   -file    -f        file to post (- for STDIN)
   -read    -r        returns current contents; no update performed
   -append  -app      appends file to existing scratchpad
   -prepend -pre      prepends file to existing scratchpad
   -public  -pub      makes scratchpad public
   -code    -c        wraps entire file in code tags
   -help    -h -?     brief help message

=head1 DESCRIPTION

B<This program> will read the given input file and post it to your scr
+atchpad.
Simply specify - for the filename to read from STDIN. Your user name i
+s
required, as well as the password. These values can be hard-coded into
+ the code
in the appropriate place if you know that no one else will see this sc
+ript. If
the username and/or password are not provided with switches and the va
+lues are
not hardcoded in the script, you will be prompted on STDIN for these v
+alues.
Also required is the file to be uploaded to your scratch pad, unless y
+ou
specify the read option, which will print your current scratch pad to 
+STDOUT
without uploading any new content. 

Not required is the code option, which will wrap the entire file to be
+ posted
with code tags; the append option, which will append the file to be po
+sted; and
the prepend option, which will prepend the file to be posted. If eithe
+r the
append or prepend option are true, two requests will be posted - one t
+o
retrieve the current contents of your scratch pad and one to post the 
+new
contents.  Make sure you spell append and prepend correctly, or else y
+ou will
wipe out your scratchpad with the new content.

The public option makes your scratchpad publicly viewable by everyone 
+else. If
you wish to make your scratchpad public, you must provide this switch 
+each time
you update your scratchpad with this script. Not providing the public 
+option
on any single script execution will result in your scratchpad being ma
+de
private. The exception is if you pass the read option -- no changes wi
+ll be
made to the scratchpad.

=head1 EXAMPLES

=item backup scratchpad to an HTML file:

./sp_poster.pl -user jeffa -read > pad.html

=item post simple HTML file:

./sp_poster.pl -user jeffa -public -file=foo.html

=item append a perl script (assing code tags):

./sp_poster.pl -u jeffa -pub -f=foo.pl -c -append

=item prepend 'on the fly' STDIN content

./sp_poster.pl -u jeffa -pub -f - -pre
    [type away - hit CNTRL-D when finished]

=item append errors from perl script

./foo.pl 2>&1>/dev/null | ./sp.pl -u jeffa -p pass -pub -f - -c -app
