POP (and delete) email messages from a mailbox
Process the messages, extract some data
The email message contains all the data you need
Store a URL, the link text, date and time, a category,
some text and possibly one or two other items - in mySQL
On the output side, provide an RSS feed for one category containing the stored information.
The call to get the output specifies category, item count.
Program in perl, use HTML::Templare for output
us a perl library to POP or IMAP the messages.
Can list categories, choose a category, list item in that category, ordered by reverse date
Can delete items manually
Use HTML::Template for this output too.
I have a spec for the DB and I'll provide more information
on the emails and other things later.
If you are really good, you have almost enough info here.
I am a perl programmer and could do this myself, but I have too many projects right now and need a little help.
Please don't use any proprietary code in your work. I will own everything you provide on this project.
Only bid if you read and understand the outline spec and you are a good programmer with perl/mysql/template knowledge. It doesn't need to look beautiful, but the code has to be good and maintainable.
