Perl spamming script available


On September 12 I posted an entry here asking about Perl scripts to spam friends with party invitations.  My young genius friend Will Crawford was over for lunch today and we implemented the proposed improvements to Ryan Tate’s original design.  The final script is available at http://philip.greenspun.com/software/brunch-spam.pl.txt and enables you to populated a structured text file with email addresses, full names, an affiliation reminder, and keywords (so you can have a mass invitation or one just to poker friends or one just to friends with young kids).

[Update:  Ryan posted an improved version of the feature-enhanced script at http://www.ocf.berkeley.edu/~ryantate/brunch-spam2.pl.txt]
