Send screenshot via email?
« on: October 25, 2005, 12:28:06 AM »
Before i write an email function to mail a screenshot to someone,
does anyone know of an existing commandline tool that could be configured using the tool menu?

Just cast this words in the room:

GETMAIL for Windows
http://www.interlog.com/~tcharron/

Sorry:
Getmail is a Windows 95/NT console utility to download the contents of a pop3
mailbox.


and
BLAT
http://www.blat.net/194/

EXAMPLES:

Please check http://www.blat.net for others! These are the examples that
shipped with Blat 1.9.4

Blat -install smtphost.bar.com foo@bar.com          // Sets host and userid
Blat -install smtphost.bar.com foo                  // Sets host and userid
Blat -install smtphost.bar.com                      // Sets host only

Blat myfile.txt -subject "A file for pedro" -to foo@bar.com
// Sends a file with subject line "A file for pedro"

Blat myfile.txt -subject "A file for pedro" -to foo@bar.com -q
// Sends a file with subject line "A file for pedro" and does not print
// informative messages on the console

Blat myfile.txt -subject "A file for mark" -to fee@fi.com -f foo@bar.com
// -f option overrides the default sender

Blat myfile.txt -subject "A file for pedro" -to foo@bar.com -i "devil@fire.hell"
// -i replaces "From:" line address (but leaves Reply-To: and Sender: lines)

Blat myfile.txt -subject "animals" -to fee@fi.com -cc "moo@grass.edu,horse@meadow.hill"
// -c mails carbon copies to users moo@grass.edu and horse@meadow.hill

Blat.exe BLAT.ZIP -subject "file to gil" -to foo@bar.com -base64
// Sends the binary file BLAT.ZIP to Gilles in MIME Base 64 format

blat looks very useful - thanks stefan!

i wonder if it would be better to have a util that sends it directly, or one that opens up the computer mail program and starts off a message.. i guess finding a solution for both methods would be nice..

Why must every second program have his own eMail function and FTP client ?

I mean a generally function that open any extern program (if they support command line options)
and give them the path and / or the  file name (and maybe other infos) as parameter
would be a better solution <?>

i.e.  CALL PATH\APP.exe %1 %2 %3 %4 ...

What is %1 and %2 and so on should be configurable somehow.

----
e.g.
Blat myfile.txt -subject "A file for pedro" -to foo@bar.com
// Sends a file with subject line "A file for pedro"

If i use BLAT i want to set
%1 = [ %CaptorFunctionCurrentShot% _]
%2 = [-subject _______]
%3 = ["some standard text here" ]
%4 = [ -to ___________]
%5 = [ %CaptorFunctionPopUpWindow for input something e.g. eMail address% ]
%6 =
%7 =

I hope i will be understood  ;D
