Excellent work,

But maybe you can add some weather textinfo though. If you decide to do so, you can use the code below to get the ICAO info from an airport close to your house.

I fetched this info with Net::FTP, (which is a little bit faster I believe?) but LWP::Simple works just as good.

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use LWP::Simple; use HTTP::Request; #Name your city, village, carton box my $city = "My City"; #Text to appear in above weatherreport my $wthrtext = "Current Weather in $city:"; # Your very own ICAO location. See for more i +nfo... my $weathericao = "EHAM.TXT"; # Create yer user agent object use LWP::UserAgent; my $ua = new LWP::UserAgent; $ua->agent( "WeatherBot " . $ua->agent ); # Add your request ;) my $req = HTTP::Request->new( GET => "$weather +icao" ); $req->header( Accept => "text/html, */*;q=0.1" ); # Now pass that request to the user agent and get a response back my $res = $ua->request($req); # Check the outcome of the response if ( $res->is_success ) { print "Fetched weather...\n\n"; } else { print "Nope, couldn't fetch weather...\n"; exit; } my $weather = $res->content; #Bring on the sunshine! print "$wthrtext\n\n$weather";

Aaaah, Sunshine ;)

Sure there's more than one way, but one just needs one anyway - Teabag

    marioroy it's taken so long, but MCE::Shared 1.827 is near the finish line. I want to add more to the documentation before making a release. This post is good to go. Github is current as well.
    marioroy MCE 1.830 is completed. I will release it after completing MCE::Shared.
