Author/Contact Info Simon Flack ($code or die)
Description: This script does the reverse of jeffa's Personal Nodelet Extractor. It is also, mainly his code - so don't bother upvoting this node.

I have needed to re-input all my personal nodelets twice in the last week because I have updated my sig. See this message for more info. This will save me a good 20 minutes next time I have to do it! I need to do some nodelet housekeeping when I have time.

Update: Nov 15 2001 Added modifypn=>'on' to the POST. Also modify and uncomment the line with $ua->proxy if you need it. Thanks ybiC!

=head1 NAME

restore_personal_nodelet.pl - LWP script

=head1 DESCRIPTION

Reverses the action of Jeffa's Personal Nodelet Extractor. Given a fil
+ename
that contains a list of node_ids, it will log in and add then all to y
+our
personal nodelet.

The majority of this code was shamelessly stolen from Jeffa's Personal
Nodelet Extractor:

http://www.perlmonks.com/index.pl?node=Personal%20Nodelet%20Extractor

=head1 SYNOPSIS

for *nix:
./restore_personal_nodelet.pl C<-u> uname C<-p> passwd C<-n> filename 

for win32:
perl restore_personal_nodelet.pl C<-u> uname C<-p> passwd C<-n> filena
+me

Invokes the script for the specified username and password. The conten
+ts on the
input file would look something like this:

    24270    Permutations and combinations
    25730    Life in the land of OOP, and I'm confused.
    17890    shift, Pop, Unshift and Push with Impunity!
    32005    Apache::MP3
    34786    Why I like functional programming

It doesn't need a default record seperator - it's collecting all numbe
+rs
so a \d+ is sufficient.
