I would like a Daemon written in PERL to monitor a serial port and when a message comes in write it to a file. Messages are in the format <page>This is the body of the message</Page> . Each message should be written to a new text file in /home/pager/messages with the file name being [url removed, login to view] - ie [url removed, login to view] . The XML style header and footer should be stripped when writing the text to the file. The program should run as a daemon and respond the instant a message comes in via the serial port.
a pretty easy project for a competent programmer.
