need a script

Hi, I have a URL from sms company, which will send SMS to anywhere in the world. I would like a script which will ask a value like mobilenumber sendername and message and send the abobe message to SMS URL format.

Here are the URL:

http://partnerweb.some.com/Partner/api41/ChkDevSndMsg41.asp?partner_id=predifined&partner_an=predifined&partner_ap=predifined&partner_phone=needtobedeined(mobile number)&partner_gateway=predifined&from=predifined&fromaddr=needtobedefined&msginv=message part.

Note:
[1] The last value did not accept space - means If we want add space we need to give %20 as a space
[2] fromaddr value can be email address or anything less then 14 chr.
[3] predefined - means value that I have to put like login password.

arvind,

Let me explain what i have understood from your comments so far.

* You want a HTML form in which a user can enter mobile number, sender name & some message
* This HTML form will then call a Perl script.
* This Perl script will take all these user entered values, add some more predefined (hardcoded) values, like partner_id, partner_an, partner_ap, partner_gateway & from to a URL & then call this URL.
* The output from the URL will then be displayed by the script.

Let me know if this is correct.

If this is correct, please provide the HTML form that you want to use.

Let me know.

no I want command line binary which will accept values and send message- like If I got the alerts mail from system- so I can send to my mobile -

example - binary -n 98923 -s (ex .sendername) arvind -m test message

and all the hardcoded values stored in the cfg file


thnx in advance

arvind,

".. command line binary wh..."

What is a command line binary? Do you mean a compiled executable file?
If yes, then how does Perl fit into the picture. Typically, Perl is an interpreted language & cannot be compiled (unless you buy a commercial product that can compile Perl code into an executable format).

Please explain, in plain english, what exactly you are trying to do, & more importantly, how you think Perl can help you.

This will help you get a more accurate answer, faster.

example usage of script below (DOS)
perl send.pl -s arvind -n 11223344 -m "This is a message"



#!/usr/bin/perl
use LWP::Simple;
use Getopt::Std;
use URI::Escape;

#-n number
#-s sender
#-m message
#-i partner id
#-a partner_an
#-g partner_gateway



getopt("nsm",\%args);


$url="http://partnerweb.some.com/Partner/api41/ChkDevSndMsg41.asp?partner_id=$args{i}&partner_an=$args{a}&partner_ap=predifined&partner_phone=$args{n}&partner_gateway=$args{g}&from=predifined&fromaddr=$args{s}&msginv=$args{m}";

$url=uri_escape($url);

#print "url=$url\n";

$result=get($url);

rj2Commented:
Try again as shown below
perl send.pl -s arvind -n 11223344 -m "This is a message" -i id -a partneran -g gateway

You could also modify the script to read the three last values from a file instead

Are you sure the URL you provided in your question is correct?
There is no site called http://partnerweb.some.com
Try replacing this URL with the correct URL


#!/usr/bin/perl
use LWP::Simple;
use Getopt::Std;
use URI::Escape;

#-n number
#-s sender
#-m message
#-i partner id
#-a partner_an
#-g partner_gateway



getopt("nsmiag",\%args);


$url="http://partnerweb.some.com/Partner/api41/ChkDevSndMsg41.asp?partner_id=$args{i}&partner_an=$args{a}&partner_ap=predifined&partner_phone=$args{n}&partner_gateway=$args{g}&from=predifined&fromaddr=$args{s}&msginv=$args{m}";

$url=uri_escape($url);

#print "url=$url\n";

$result=get($url);

print "$result\n";
