MESSAGE_GROUP(1)      User Contributed Perl Documentation     MESSAGE_GROUP(1)

NAME
       message_group - Send a message to a myspace group

VERSION
       Version 0.7

SYNOPSIS
	message_group config_file

       Where config_file is a YAML file	containing account and message info.
       Note that this should be	readable only by you (i.e. chmod 600
       config_file).

       This script is a	command-line front end for the WWW::Myspace::Message
       module that lets	you message all	the members of a specific MySpace
       group.  This is handy if, say, your band	sounds like another band and
       you want	to send	a message to the members of that group saying that
       they might like your music because they like that band.

	Sample config file:

	---
	account: myaccount@myspace.com
	password: mypassword
	subject: Hi there!
	cache_file: /path/to/mycache
	message: |
	  This is a message.
	  It is, and must be, indented by two spaces.

	  - Me
	group: 1255555

	# You can also do this to specify multiple groups (notice the indent again):
	group:
	  - 1255555
	  - 1244444
	  - 1345553

       This script will	read the config	file and start messaging. If it	hits
       the max_count value or a	CAPTCHA	response, it will sleep	for 24 hours,
       then continue. If the script is stopped or interrupted, re-run it using
       the same	config file and	it will	pick up	where it left off. The script
       invokes the send_all method in WWW::Myspace::Message.  Use perldoc
       WWW::Myspace::Message to	read the docs on that module.

       Note: To	run this as a cron job,	set delay_time to 0 in the config
       file. This will make it exit instead of pausing when it hits max_count
       or CAPTCHA.  This is good because it'll re-read the friends list	on the
       next run, so it'll pick up any changes.

	delay_time: 0

       Be careful when specifying multiple groups. The script will read	all
       the friends from	all the	groups each time it's run.  Since you're only
       going to	message	about 300 per day, that	can be a big waste of
       resources.  Try to do one group at a time.

BUGS
       Please report any bugs or feature requests, or send any patches,	to
       "bug-www-myspace	at rt.cpan.org", or through the	web interface at
       <http://rt.cpan.org/NoAuth/ReportBug.html?Queue=WWW-Myspace>.  I	will
       be notified, and	then you'll automatically be notified of progress on
       your bug	as I make changes.

       IF YOU USE A MAIL SERVICE (or program) WITH JUNK	MAIL FILTERING,
       especially HOTMAIL or YAHOO, add	the bug	reporting email	address	above
       to your address book so that you	can receive status updates.

       Bug reports are nice, patches are nicer.
