If your power starts to fail on you, this will get on AIM and tell you. You need an AIM screenname.
use Net::AIM; $screenname = ''; # the screenname to connect with $password = ''; # the password to connect with $ownersn = ''; # the screenname to have your bot notify $SIG{PWR} = \&PWR_handler; sub PWR_handler { $aim = new Net::AIM; $aim->newconn(Screenname => $screenname, Password => $password) or d +ie 'Can\'t connect to AIM server.\n'; $conn = $aim->getconn(); $aim->start; $conn->send_im($ownersn, 'My power supply is failing. Please come an +d save me!'); exit; }

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.
