  • I am using it in a program that sends caller-id info from my modem to wherever I am logged on to AIM. I am only using it to send messages, not receive, so I can't attest that the whole API works.

    Another plus to Net::AIMTOC is that it is using TOC rather than OSCAR. In theory, AOL doesn't change TOC to break non-AIM clients like they do OSCAR.

    I tried Net::AIM first, too, and gave up.

    • Hmm...I'm having even less luck with Net::AIMTOC than I am with Net::AIM. The latter would at least let me login, though sending messages didn't seem to work. Net::AIMTOC doesn't even get that far for me.
      • This code works for me, using Net::AIMTOC v0.94 and perl 5.8.0 as shipped with Mandrake 9.

        use Net::AIMTOC;

        my $aim = Net::AIMTOC->new;
        $aim->connect;
        $aim->sign_on( 'brringbot', 'password' );
        $aim->send_im_to_aol( 'paxsdad', 'this is an example message');
