in reply to hup - home node updater

Since I use it so much, I thought I would add scratchpad capability.

added options [ -c | --contentsofpad ] and [ -m | --makepublic ]

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use HTTP::Request::Common 'POST'; use HTTP::Cookies; use LWP::UserAgent; use HTML::TokeParser; use Getopt::Long; use constant TINYNODE => 16046; use constant PM => ''; $| = 1; { my ($ua, $req); my ($homenode, $username, $password, $file); my ($realname, $email, $image, $location); my ($verbose, $significant); # added for scratchpad my ($setpublic,$scratchfile,$scratchpad); GetOptions( "username=s" => \$username, "password=s" => \$password, "name=s" => \$realname, "email=s" => \$email, "image=s" => \$image, "location=s" => \$location, "homenode=s" => \$file, # added for scratchpad "contentofpad=s"=> \$scratchfile, "makepublic" => \$setpublic, "significant" => \$significant, "verbose" => \$verbose ); die usage() unless $username && $password; die "Can't find $file\n" if defined $file and not -f $file; # added for scratchpad die "Can't find $scratchfile\n" if defined $scratchfile and not -f + $scratchfile; # added for scratchpad $scratchpad = join "", do { local @ARGV = $scratchfile; <> } if de +fined $scratchfile; $homenode = join "", do { local @ARGV = $file; <> } if defined $fi +le; die "Can't find image $image\n" if defined $image and not -f $imag +e; $ua = new LWP::UserAgent("Homenode Updater"); $ua->cookie_jar( HTTP::Cookies->new() ); print "Logging in...\n" if $verbose; $req = POST PM, [ node_id => TINYNODE, op => 'login', user => $username, passwd => $password ]; die "Couldn't log in.

It's basically a command-line interface to the "Edit your user information" link on one's homenode. hup allows you to change anything on that page, except the password. You can use the following switches (of which -u and -p are mandatory): =over 4 =item C<-u> or C<--username> Your Perl Monks username =item C<-p> or C<--password> Your Perl Monks password =item C<-i> or C<--image> The location of your home node picture =item C<-h> or C<--homenode> The location of the file containing home node contents =item C<-n> or C<--name> Your real name =item C<-e> or C<--email> Your email address =item C<-c> or C<--contentofpad> The location of the file containing scratch pad contents =item C<-m> or C<--makepublic> Make scratchpad public =item C<-l> or C<--location> Your Location =item C<-s> or C<--significant> Use this switch to flag it as a significant update =item C<-v> or C<--verbose> Be a little verbose =back =head1 EXAMPLES Update your home node picture: hup -u mynick -p mypassword -i /path/to/image.jpg Update your homenode contents and location and flag it as a significan +t update, and be verbose: hup -u mynick -p mypassword -h /etc/passwd -l "Foo Bar" -s -v =cut
