o2sms - A perl script to send SMS messages using .ie websites.

"o2sms" is a script to send SMS messages via the command line using the websites of Irish mobile operators. This is done by simulating a web browser's interaction with those websites. This script requires a valid web account with O2 Ireland, Vodafone Ireland or Meteor Ireland.
The author accepts no responsibility nor liability for your use of this software. Please read the terms and conditions of the website of your mobile provider before using the program.

Configuration is in the file "~/.o2sms/config" (or "~/.vodasms/config" or "~/.meteorsms/config" or "~/.threesms/config") (or "~/.aftsms/config") or can be overwritten with the -c / --config-file command line option.
Values in this file are stored as one per line and take the same name and format as their command line equivalents.
The one exception to this is the 'alias' setting, which defines a named alias for one number (a straight alias) or more than one number (a group).
Configuration file example:
  username frankc
  password mong0l0id
  alias mammy +353865551234
  alias beerpeople +353865550000 +353865550001 +353865550002
