NAME

approve_friends - Approve new friends and post a comment to them

CONTENTS

VERSION

Version 0.09

SYNOPSIS

approve_friends [-m message] [-y] [-u username -p password] [-nc]
[-f filename] [-c cache_file] [-gc message ]

approve_friends [-f filename.yaml]

The first form of the command specifies arguments on the command line. If the -f flag is used, the username, password, and message will be read from the file. The username on the first line, password on the second, and message on the remaining lines.



 -nc: no comment. Just approve friend requests, dont leave comments.
 -c cache_file: Use "cache_file" as the file to store info about who
        weve commented.
 -gc message: If we approve less than 50 friends, post "message" as a
        comment to any friends we have that dont already have a comment on
        their page. See the example below for how this is useful.



The second form of the command takes a YAML configuration file. Any other command-line arguments will be ignored.

Note that the ability to specify the cache file lets you set a different file if you have multiple accounts. If you use the same cache_file as you do for the comment script (and you should), both scripts will avoid posting to users you’ve already commented with either script. This allows you to run them concurrently.

EXAMPLES



 # Approve and leave a comment for new friends. Since we can comment 50
 # people a day, if weve approved/commented less than 50, go through the
 # rest of our friends list and leave a comment for as many as we can.
 # This will leave "Thanks for adding me!" as a comment for new friends,
 # and "Just stopping by to say hello!" as a comment for existing friends.
 # Remember, Comment.pm will automatically skip profiles youve already
 # commented or are on the top 8 of.
 # Stops at 50 total posts.
 approve_friends -m "Thanks for adding me\!" \
     -gc "Just stopping by to say hello\!"

 Sample YAML config file:

 ---
 username: myaccount@myspace.com
 password: ILikePasswords
 message: |
   This is a message.
  
   It is a few lines long
  
   - Me
 silent: 1  # Or 0 (default)
 no_comment: 1  # Or 0 (default)
 cache_file: /home/joe/approve_cache
