Continuing the subject of useful command line tools, I ran across one today which I am really thankful I found: Blat.
Blat is a command line SMTP mailer. It is simple to use, just “install” Blat by specifying the default SMTP server and from address to use and then you can email text files with a single command line instruction. This is ideal for backup or diagnostic warnings.
Again, this is a great tool to have and it sure beats my old method of piping text output from a file to the PHP command line…
