http://howtoforge.com – Send Instant Messages (Notifies) By XMPP (Jabber/Google Talk) From Linux Command Line sendxmpp is a perl-script to send xmpp (jabber), similar to what mail does for mail. Obviously, to use sendxmpp , you need a jabber account; they are freely available at jabber.org, but you can also run your own server. The good news is, instant messaging between the Google Talk servers and its clients uses an open protocol, XMPP, allowing users of other XMPP/Jabber clients to communicate with Google Talk users. This tutorial shows how you can compile and install SendXMPP on CentOS 5.5 server. (HowTos)
