    You mean Skype? CPAN has a number of modules dealing with Skype: Skype.


    A program should be light and agile, its subroutines connected like a string of pearls. The spirit and intent of the program should be retained throughout. There should be neither too little or too much, neither needless loops nor useless variables, neither lack of structure nor overwhelming rigidity." - The Tao of Programming, 4.1 - Geoffrey James

    If you want to implement your own IP phone, Net::SIP likely has lots of parts you will need.

    I mean, for example I have an ip-phone(hardware) in my local network and I want to change the settings of the phone(username/password etc).

      Well, that depends. At $work we have ip phones that talk to an asterisk server, and that server stores usernames and passwords in a postgresql database. So changing username and password is a simple matter of using DBI and DBD::Pg.

      If your setup is different, it might be worth looking in the phone's documentation what protocols it can talk, and then look on CPAN for modules that help you with those protocols.

        Well, I know my phone is using sip protocol, and I found the Net::SIP, but how to change settings with this package? This package contains API for this work, because I can't it found.

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
