The email client server example...Where?
[1/7] from: steve::shireman::semaxwireless::com at: 22-Jun-2001 8:00
Just went to the Doctor Dobbs articles on the web to see if I could look at the old program that was published which showed an email client (kinda) program which would check incoming email, say if you left your computer on at work, and parse out emails of interest, maybe even with commands in them (?) can't remember. But I can't find the example in the listings on the Web, and I haven't located my Dr Dobb's paper-mag where it was published. (I think it was the January 200x "Scripting Languages" issue. Anybody know what I am talking about? I have a small window of opportunity to construct a billion-dollar demo which uses this type of technique. Thanks in advance, Steve Shireman ...Billion, dollar demos... Ali$e Cooper

I think this is what you're after? Set up a forwarder that does something like [robot--yourdomain--com] -> |/home/you/robot.r Now robot.r will be invoked whenever an email is sent to [robot--yourdomain--com] with the email passed in via stdin All you then need to do is write the robot.r script to do something like: #!/path/to/rebol REBOL [ .... ] buffer: make string! 15000 read-io system/ports/input buffer 15000 ... parse buffer, it's a full email (inc header) I can send an eg if needed ... I'm in the middle of writing one of these for my site, and a /zine article on how to use them... Chris -- New sig in the works Explorer2260 Designer and Coder http://www.starforge.co.uk

Chris, Thanks for the ideas there. I was thinking of something similar to Jobbot.r. Looked in Scripts library EMAIL examples and found it there. (not sure if this is the one which was published) I was going to have it just monitor the POP server and get only the emails of interest, and graph what is in them. Not a hard task, but cheating is many times easier. Steve Shireman Chris wrote:

Hi Steve, IIRC in that article, the email server was a modified version of jobbot.r http://www.reboltech.com/library/scripts/jobbot.r Pity we can't find the older ones, I guess if they had everything on the site then we would consider buying the CDs :-). I could find http://www.ddj.com/ftp/2000/2000_07/rebol.txt which a has a few nice bits of block parsing. They must be due for another artcle from Carl. Cheers, Allen K

Ted, Yes!!! that is exactly it!! ("remote email agent" Listing 6) So it was Web Techniques, not Dr. Dobbs. I'll give you 1000 nano-% if it works out as finder fee. Thanks, Steve Shireman Ted Serpa wrote:
