PHP script or class to copy emails from a POP3 server to a database

Anybody know of a good PHP command line script that will connect to a POP3 mail client and download the contents of the emails into a database. Need one that splits up the to, from, subject, content, time, etc ... and that will save the attachments into a subdirectory and store the filenames in the db at the same time.

If nobody knows of a command line script, maybe a PHP class with some of this functionality that I can adapt?

Doesn't even have to be PHP ... a Perl solution would be fine.

I wrote a project that read a pop3 account and create a xml feed from it.
Everything that you need must be in this project. Surely from the feed, you should be able to load it a database.
