So my wireless scanner/printer doohicky can send its scans to an email address as a PDF attachment. These are currently piling up in a custom google mail account I have for this purpose.
I want to automatically download the PDFs to my mac with a Perl script that I'll trigger periodically from launchd.
What are the cool kids using do to this now? Net::*? Email::*? Courriel? Something else?
To be clear, my requirements are approximately:
- Talk IMAP
- Download mail
- Extract the attachment
- Delete the mail
(I don't care about the text part of the email, nor the subject, just the attachment)
