I have an existing script in PERL that when executed, does a mysql query on a database for a field, if it finds todays date in that field, it marks another field in the database with a value of "new".
This sets the stage for other scripts to be triggered from cron jobs set in linux crontab.
I would like you to add a subroutine to this script, so that after it's done with it's existing work, it sends me an SMS message to my cell phone here in Thailand.
It should be simple, and you should already know which SMS services work well with such a PERL script. Some SMS gateways do not work. I don't mind subscribing to one that does in fact work with PERL.
If you think you can do this in PHP, ok, but I like PERL for this kind of task.
