Another fun article from IBM DeveloperWorks, Make incoming e-mail play custom tunes, Compose and blend sounds based on sender and content.

"You've got mail" is so 20th century. Use Perl and Sound eXchange (SoX) to play sound files on your Linux® or Windows® computer based on the content of incoming e-mail messages. Your system can compose and blend certain sounds to give you a heads-up on the who, what, and why of your in-box content."

Yet another quirky way to use Perl to spice up your desktop :)

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
