DESCRIPTION
       The tSmoke tool is a commandline	tool which interfaces with the
       SmokePing system.  Its main function is to send a message indicating
       the current status of the systems being monitored by Smokeping or an
       HTML mail file containing the status over the past day, past week and
       past month including an overview.

       Typical crontab used to invoke this are

	# Quick	morning	alert to see what's down
	0 6 * *	* /usr/local/smokeping/bin/tSmoke.pl --q --to=mobilephone@att.net.invalid --morning
	# Weekly report	on the percent availability of network systems with no detail
	0 8 * *	* /usr/local/smokeping/bin/tSmoke.pl --q --to=mailbox@company.com.invalid --weekly --detail=0

SETUP
       When installing tSmoke, some variables must be adjusted to fit your
       local system.

       We need to use the following libraries:

       Smokeping
       RRDTool Perl bindings
       Getopt::Long

       Set up your libraries:

	use lib	"/usr/local/smokeping/lib";
	use lib	"/usr/local/rrdtool-1.0.39/lib/perl";

       Point to	your Smokeping config file

	my $cfgfile = "/usr/local/smokeping/etc/config";

       Modify the Smokeping config file	to include a path for tmail in the
       General section:

	tmail =	/usr/local/smokeping/etc/tmail
