Operating System: Linux
Just create a new IM nick on your favorite network (links here) - something like "MySiteIM" always works - fill out the blanks in the config.im file, and your headlines are viewable on that network automatically, including from most cell phones if you use AIM or MSN. It works with AIM, ICQ, YIM and Jabber.
This project is a derivative of the SDBA Revolution IM Application Server version 1.85 and includes all files you will need. You will need to have an uptodate version of Perl with XML::RSS, in addition to the other libraries required.
· Make sure Perl is set up correctly, with all libraries (including XML::RSS!).
· Open config.im and put in your chosen nick and password for the bot, edit the network (default is AIM), and put in the URL to your feed.
· Start sdba.pl from the command line.
· Message the nick you chose from any IM client.
