Dayum, that's alot of code. I wrote a piece of cam-like software today. I have found a program that works astonishingly well (gqcam) on my linux box. The only problem being that it doesn't auto upload. So, I took it upon myself to write some code for it:
#!/usr/bin/perl -w use Net::FTP; my $hostname; my $username; my $password; my $boink; my $directory; my $filename; my $ftp; my $sleeptime; $boink = 0; while ($boink == 0) { $ftp = Net::FTP->new($hostname) or die "can't connect: $@\n"; $ftp->login($username,$password) or die "can't login: $@\n"; $ftp->cwd($directory) or die "can't cwd to $directory\n"; $ftp->type(binary) or die "cannot change type to binary\n"; $ftp->put($filename) or die "cannot put $filename\n"; $ftp->close; sleep($sleeptime); }
Althogh this is nothing revolutionary, I thought that I might as well post it because it runs under -w, as far as I am aware. I attempted to launch gqcam from the program with: `gqcam &`; but that generated error after error for the cam program. If anyone has any input on this, let me know.
