PERL and Notes

This is just a general question - I have a names.nsf database with user IDS, can I write a perl script that will be able to access the names.nsf file and get information?  Is there a way for PERL to access notes?

Yes, you can use the COM interface, and you will need to use the session initializing method appropriate to your setup (depending on whether you are running on a server or a client).

Someone also put out a basic PERL library for Notes a while back.

Any tips on a good refernce point for me to start with.

I have plans on writing a perl script that hits the server that names.nsf is on.

I would like to see the session initializing method you refered to.

names.nsf is on every server

You shoudl check the Initialize methid in Designer help.  It refers to accessing Domino via COM, and assumes you will probably use VB, but the object model is the same whether you access COM via VB or Perl.

On a server, you can pass a user name and password string pair as parameters, and it will attempt to do login the same way web browsers do.  On a workstation, you must pass the password to the current default user ID file.  You can also use the client form of Initialize on a server, but you can't use the server form on the client.
