I run Perl Training Australia [perltraining.com.au].

I help with Melbourne Perl Mongers.

I spend an awful lot of time talking about Perl, and have had my picture in the Australian newspapers with a camel. That's rather scary.

SweeperBot - Play MineSweeper Automatically!

[ #36466 ]

SweeperBot - Play MineSweeper Automatically!
My latest project has finally been launched. See SweeperBot.org for the latest in Windows productivity software. Even if you don't use Windows, do watch the 50 second video on the site; it represents a whole day of my life spent poorly, and I think it's hilarious. ;)

For anyone wondering, yes, it's written in Perl. It uses PAR/PP to package the whole thing up into a single Windows executable. Yes, it plays MineSweeper acceptably well, thanks to Audrey Tang showing me the cheat codes at OSDC a few years back. ;)

  • Nice :)

    Par is fairly awesome even if it does trip me up a bit whenever I try to install it. Another awesome thing is NSIS (Nullsoft Scriptable Install System).

    A few find and replaces to my install script and we have one for SweeperBot (here [redbrick.dcu.ie],example output here [redbrick.dcu.ie])
