Mailbrowse for two way pagers...
As soon as I got my SkyTel
two-way pager I wanted a way to browse the web with it. Perl to
the rescue! By sending mail to
putting a URL in the first line of the body of the message, my program
will grab the web page, format and clean up the text to be better
viewable on pagers and then send it back to you.
As SkyTel pagers have a limit of 10,000 bytes incoming the script will break
apart the web page into 9,800 byte chunks and send it back to you in parts.
The parts will be numbered in the subject line and will be limited to three
parts per request.
Have fun with it!.
After I wrote the above, I was approached by Web Techniques to do
an article about it. You can retrive the local
