Title:How can I have notifications sent via Yahoo Messenger?
FAQ ID:F0035

User would like to have notifications sent out using the Yahoo Messenger instant messaging client.



Install the Net::YahooMessenger module from CPAN and then write a Perl script to send the notifications out.

02/10/2006 Update: Someone noted that the CPAN module referred to above is not currently being maintained and doesn't work properly. Anyone want to take a stab at updating the CPAN module?

Note: If anyone has an example script that can be used with this module for notification purposes, send it to me at
