The two scripts in this directory are meant to demonstrate the two modes of operation present in Net::Hotline::Client. They haven't been very well tested, so don't expect stellar reliability. 1. "hlftp.pl" is a simple command line FTP-like Hotline client included to demonstrate Net::Hotline::Client's "blocking task mode" (read the documentation for an explanation). Its operation should be familiar to anyone who's used ncftp or the regular Unix ftp client. The version of "hlftp.pl" included here may be out of date by the time you read this. Please check the following URL for the latest version: http://siracusa.home.mindspring.com/Perl/ 2. "hibot.pl" is a very simple Hotline "bot" included to demonstrate Net::Hotline::Client's "event loop mode" (again, RTFM). It works a lot like hlftp.pl in terms of connecting to servers. Log the bot onto your local Hotline server an message it with the text "help" for more information.
