in reply to iTunes lacking on CPAN...

Another idea would be to save yourself quite some work by using a service like last.fm.

    It looks like http://last.fm has an XML/RSS feed that I can use (along with some HTML they provide that links to a .gif image with a list of recently played tracks. Doesn't update too fast though it looks like...) to show the most recent tracks...perhaps i could use XML::Twig for this...

    The XML is a LOT simpler for this site:

    Or, I could even parse the even simpler CSV file:

    1163436933,Staind Everything Changes 1163436668,The Smashing Pumpkins 1979 1163436360,Yellowcard Gifts and Curses 1163435904,Rascal Flatts What Hurts The Most

    meh.

    Looks like that could work great crenz. ++ to you :-). I still think it would be nice to have a module do this so people wouldn't have to sign up for a service to do it for me...that way they could have a perl app or C program that could run in the background and update automatically...

    meh.
