Description: A command line perl tool that uses xml-rpc to tell weblogs.com that your blog has been updated. See here Fun from both the command line and cron. weblogscom.pl uses command line options, so invoke it like this... perl weblogscom.pl --title=BLOG_TITLE -- url=BLOG_URL
#!/usr/bin/perl -w

use strict;
use Frontier::Client;
use Getopt::Long;

use constant WEBLOGCOMXMLRPCSERVER => 'http://rpc.weblogs.com/RPC2';

my $MYBLOGTITLE = "";
my $MYBLOGURL     = "";
my $client     = "";
my $response     = "";
my $output     = "";


GetOptions( "title=s" => \$MYBLOGTITLE,
        "url=s" => \$MYBLOGURL);

$client = Frontier::Client->new(
    url        => WEBLOGCOMXMLRPCSERVER,
    use_objects    => 0,
    debug        => 0);

$response = $client -> call ('weblogUpdates.ping', $MYBLOGTITLE, $MYBL
+OGURL);

print "Weblogs.com said: \n\n $response->{'message'}\n\n";
