How to use this program.
------------------------
First you will need to set your username and password. You can do it this way:
Open plurk.pl and find these two lines at the beginning of the file:
use constant USERNAME => 'your_username';
use constant PASSWORD => 'your_password';
Change 'your_username' to your username, and 'your_password' to your password.
You can now plurk! Here is how to do it:
$ ./plurk.pl [-a <action>] <message>
The default action is "says". You may set it to any of the following:
loves, likes, gives, hates, wants, wishes, needs,
will, hopes, asks, has, was, wonders, feels,
thinks, says, is.
The "shares" action is not yet supported.
Here are some examples:
$ ./plurk.pl -a thinks it's going to rain today
This will plurk that you are thinking that "it's going to rain today".
$ ./plurk.pl -a has read more books
This will plurk that you have "read more books".
$ ./plurk.pl hello world
This will plurk that you say "hello world".
PS. There are actually two more command line arguments -u and -p, you can use
them to change your username and password on the fly.
For example:
$ ./plurk.pl -u ateam -p bazooka "your plurk message here"
This will plurk "your plurk message here" from user "ateam" with password
"bazooka".

Happy plurking!
