in reply to Function to produce formatted ord values of a string

From unpack  sub ordinal { unpack("W",$_[0]); } # same as ord()

So  sub ords { pack '(A4)*', unpack 'W*', @_ } though this only pads spaces to the right, and truncates

[1nickt]: Perl300 Try Email::Stuffer
[1nickt]: Or for a little more control, Email::Sender:: Simple
[Perl300]: any suggestion on which one might be secure and simplest. I am not doing anything complex, just check some conditions from DB tables and send email to myself (same domain) if conditions are met
[1nickt]: read the doc of the suggestions I just gave
[1nickt]: A lot depends on whether you are sending mail from your local box or using a remote server
[hippo]: Secure in what sense?
[Perl300]: I am sending from remote server
[1nickt]: Then see Email::Sender:: Transport::SMTP
[Perl300]: secure in sense it should not cause any security concerns, create some loop holes.... I don't know much about it but don't want to cause any problem for security guys here
[Perl300]: I used sendmail before for a few times but read that is causes some security issues so trying something better/secure this time
