My 20th port :)
If you have an AT&T Wireless, Bell Canada/Bell Mobility, Cellular One,
Cingular, Cricket, Sprint PCS, SkyTel, or T-Mobile cell phone or pager, and you
want the ability to send SMS messages to it via a command-line utility, this is
what you need. All this program requires is a computer with a baseline Perl 5.x
installation and web access. NO EXTRA PERL MODULES REQUIRED!
How does it work?
SendSMS connects to your service provider's web page and pretends to submit a
form to their 'Instant Messaging' web page. Currently, AT&T Wireless, Bell
Canada/Bell Mobility, Cellular One, Cingular, Cricket, SkyTel, Sprint PCS, and
T-Mobile are supported. Users are encouraged to modify the provided templates to
add support for any providers who are currently unsupported.
Other Service Providers
If you are interested in supporting another service provider please try to
modify sendSMS on your own. It is not hard at all. Instructions and examples are
included in the code, and if you're familiar with the site you're porting to, it
takes about 15 minutes. If you get sendSMS working with any other providers' web
sites, please email Paul Kreiner [deacon at thedeacon.org] and/or the port
maintainer a patch so it can be added to the next release.
Are you sure about the www category? SMS tools usually go to comms/
Also, this will not patch, as you USE_PERL_RUN and patch: is before

Since it actually submits a web form, I think is rather www. comms secondar=

=46rom now on, perl/non-perl it's REINPLACE all the way.
I'll fix it sometime tomorrow.

New port added with changes, s/USE_PERL_RUN/USE_PERL5_RUN/, Use
PLIST_FILES instead pkg-plist with just one line, since PERL is required
just to run, use REINPLACE_CMD to patch. Thanks for contributing!
