in reply to reading piped email with attachments

Maybe something like this will help (it is a piece of code that I recently wrote for my weblog to accept entries via email):

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use MIME::Parser; use FileHandle; use File::Path; $|++; # autoflush on # Directory paths my $tmp_dir = '/home/moxliukas/tmp'; my $output_dir = '/home/moxliukas/public_html/moblog/images'; my $parser = MIME::Parser->new; $parser->output_dir($tmp_dir); my $entry = $parser->parse(\*STDIN); # for each MIME message part... for my $part ($entry->parts) { # ...check MIME type my $mime = $part->mime_type; if($mime =~ /jpeg/) { # if it is JPG, generate a new filename my $url = time() . '.jpg'; my $fh = FileHandle->new($output_dir . '/' . $url, 'w' +); binmode($fh); # Let's write the JPG to the output directory my $ifh = $part->open('r'); $fh->print($ifh->getlines); $_->close for($fh, $ifh); } $dbh->disconnect;

Hope this helps.
