DESCRIPTION

This module is a wrapper around Net::Jabber that allows you to do one thing simply - send Jabber messages. It is useful for daemon processes, cron jobs or in any program that you want to be able to get your attention via Jabber.

METHODS

send_jabber_mesage()

You can call this method with either 5 scalar arguments or with a single reference to a hash. In the later case it takes a hash with the following keys,

user

Your JID, or at least the JID you want the program to use.

password

The password corresponding to the username above.

target

The JID you want to send the message to.

subject

The subject of the message.

message

The message (which can include newlines).

KUDOS

Ryan Eatmon for doing the hard work and doing Net::Jabber, DJ Adams for answering my questions about Jabber in the past. Various CPAN authors for proving the usefulness of ::Simple modules.
