Retiring, March 2020 - sorry, you have missed our final public course.
The Coronavirus situation has lead us to suspend public training - which was on the cards anyway, with no plans to resume

Please ask about private 'maintenance' training for Python, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, etc
Happily continuing private consultancy / programming work
 
Sending awkward characters by email in Perl

Carrying on from the email work I described in a recent article, I wrote an example today in Perl where I used the mailx program to send an email, piping to it in a system call via an echo.

For a one-liner, without special characters in the text, this is easy ... but to get echo to pass through all characters including the " delimiter and new lines took a bit more effort - but we did manage in the end with an absurdly easy looking piece of code - see here. There's an extended example, with the emial being routed to different addressed depending on its content, here.

Final - and off topic - example for today. Formatting in Perl with (s)printf. Did you know you can use "b" for binary? Example - and more formatted printing - here
