                               Version 1.1

Cryptogram2Kindle is a small script I wrote to send Bruce Schneiers Crypto-Gram
Newsletter <http://www.schneier.com/crypto-gram.html> to my Kindle for easier
reading.
To spare me the hassle of converting the Newsletter to the .mobi format, I am
"reusing" Paolo Bernardi's RSS feed <https://paolobernardi.wordpress.com/feed/>
where he offers every Cryptogram issue in EPUB and MOBI format.
So all this humble script does is reading the feed, search for .epub files it
hasn't found and mail them to the (free) e-mail address of your kindle.

GETTING STARTED
===============
1. On Debian: sudo aptitude install libxml-rss-feed-perl libmime-lite-perl 
2. Copy the script to a directory of your choice. You need (another) directory, 
   where you have write permissions so the script can store some data inbetween
   sessions. 
3. Modify the neccessary variables in the code. 
4. Add a line to your crontab, that looks something like this:
    07 11 *   *   *     /usr/bin/perl /home/m3/work/cryptogram2kindle.pl

Enjoy!
