During the holidays I finally took the time to implement some time-savers:
scp domm2.zsi.at:~/somefile.bar .
The whole procedure takes about 30 seconds.
Thats about 20 characters. So I wrote a small script using Net::SHH and NET::SCP that looks into a special folder on my office machine, downloads everything from this folder into cwd and deletes the files from the special folder. It's about 300 characters long, and I probably typed twice as much due to debugging etc. It took me about 30 minutes. So, my investment will pay off after aprox 60 downloads, or about 2 months (at one attachment a day, which is aproximitly the amount I get). (Uhm, writing about it now probably cost me another month, or the other way round, I get a 'free' journal entry every month)
Tag all new mail, set all tagged mail to read.
Easy, saves another minute a day...
...but I never took the time to post it on CPAN.
I wrote it because clicking through 60+ spam a day in the only mailing-list I lazily admin is too much for me. So I wrote the script as an example in my series of articles (in French) about LWP and friends: LWP [mongueurs.net], Avanced LWP stuff [mongueurs.net] and WWW::Mechanize [mongueurs.net].
The script you want is section 3 of the third article: Un exemple pas à pas : le formulaire de Mailman [mongueurs.net].
I'd have put it on CPAN, but then I'd have to maintain it, add useful features like interactive selectio
Oh, great. I'll give it a try and report back to you.
One funny thing: Contrary to your intended audience I need the Perl code to make sense of your (french) writing (as I don't speak french)
