    SMS from Perl using HTTP request

    Hey guys. For my project, I needed to find a way to send SMS messages from Perl. It turns out, it is easy to send messages from Perl using HTTP requestes and a software called Ozeki NG SMS Gateway.
    To send SMS messages from Perl using HTTP requests, first you need to download, install and configure Ozeki NG SMS Gateway software to your computer. Then import the source code provided below into a new project you write in Perl. After you imported it you can configure the code. You need to customize the values in the source code below.

    [CODE]

    #!/usr/bin/perl



    ###############################################

    ## Ozeki NG - SMS Gateway Perl example ##

    ###############################################



    use HTTP::Request;

    use LWP::UserAgent;

    use URI::Escape;





    ###############################################

    ### Ozeki NG informations ###

    ###############################################

    $host = "127.0.0.1";

    $port = "9501";

    $username = "admin";

    $password = "abc123";

    $recipient = "+00123456";

    $message = "Test Message from Perl";





    ###############################################

    ### Putting together the final HTTP Request ###

    ###############################################

    $url = "http://" . $host;

    $url .= ":" . $port;

    $url .= "/api?action=sendmessage&";

    $url .= "username=" . uri_escape($username);

    $url .= "&password=" . uri_escape($password);

    $url .= "&recipient=" . uri_escape($recipient);

    $url .= "&messagetype=SMS:TEXT";

    $url .= "&messagedata=" . uri_escape("HELLO WORLD");





    ################################################

    #### Sending the message ###

    ################################################

    $request = HTTP::Request->new(GET=>$url);

    $useragent = LWP::UserAgent->new;

    $response = $useragent->request($request);





    ################################################

    ### Verifying the response ###

    ################################################

    if ($response->is_success) {

    print "Message successfully sent"

    } else {

    print "Message not sent! Please check your settings!"

    }

    i personally prefer SMSD. you just create properly formated text file in right directory so it can be done with just one line of code. any scripting language will do that.
    recieving messages is simple too - read from txt file. plus you can send binary messages like logos, vcards and stuff like that
