Replying to Facebook mail on command line

this is a little helper script that I wrote to use in conjunction with FBCMD to reply to inbox messages directly on the command line without going to the website.

It takes two args, the message number (as given out by fbcmd inbox) and the message itself. pretty straightforward. Just throwing it out there.

it's meant to be used with fbcmd, but if you like you can provide a thread_id to it as well (slight mod might be needed)


use strict;
use WWW::Mechanize;
use HTTP::Cookies;

my $username = 'youremail';
my $password = 'yourpass';
my $maildata = "/home/youruser/.fbcmd/maildata.txt";

my $msgid=`php -r \"\\\$ld=unserialize(file_get_contents('$maildata'));print \\\$ld['ids'][$ARGV[0]];\"`;

my $mech = WWW::Mechanize->new();

$mech->submit_form(form_number => 1,fields =>{email=>$username,password=>$password});

$mech->content() =~ /\/w\/(\w+)\/logout/;
