DailyStrips 1.0.28

DailyStrips is a utility to download your favorite online comic strips each day.
DailyStrips is a utility to download your favorite online comic strips each day. What sets it apart from the rest is its "local" mode of operation, which automatically downloads strips for you. Avantgo is also supported, for downloading comics to PDAs.

This Perl script downloads the URL for the current comic of various strips that are available online, and outputs these URLs to an HTML file. This enables you to view all of your favorite strips at once, instead of visiting several different websites.

One feature that sets this program apart from the rest is the ability to operate in 'local' mode. This mode, instead of writing the addresses to images in the HTML file, actually downloads the image and saves it locally. This way, you do not have to wait for each image to download - it's already on your hard drive. This is most useful when DailyStrips is run from a cron script. (See file README.LOCAL for more information and examples)

Requirements:
DailyStrips requires a reasonably current version of Perl - it was developed with 5.6.0. The HTTP::Request, LWP::UserAgent, and POSIX modules are needed. If you want to use --date, you will need Date::Time from the TimeDate package. See www.cpan.org if you don't have them installed already. DailyStrips was developed on Linux but should be able to run on any *nix with that has the necessary Perl modules installed. Running on Win32 is also possible.

If you use AvantGo mode, ImageMagick is required.
