First of all - WELCOME! It's nice to see a new name in the MOBY
Okay, the best way to get started is by following a tutorial. There are
several of them around the Web - one day I will take the time to collect
the links to all of them on our new website - however, there is one
available to you on the main MOBY pages:
If you have checked-out the CVS of the moby-live code, you should first
do an update since I just edited the example code today. Then go to the
moby-live/Perl/scripts folder. In that folder is a file called
Services.cgi and that shows you what a typical Perl daemon looks like.
In the ./scripts/Services folder you will find two examples of MOBY
service modules. The first one - HelloWorld.pm - is about as simple as a
service can get, and shows you the basic scaffold for how to put a
service together. The other file - LocalServices.pm - contains all of
the code for all of the services that I am running from my own server
here in Vancouver. Some of these are quite complex, but they will give
you examples of most common MOBYesque messages.
So... hopefully that will get you started. Please just send a message
to this mailing list if you run into problems. There are lots of people
around who can help! :-)

"For most of this century we have viewed communications as a conduit,
a pipe between physical locations on the planet.
What's happened now is that the conduit has become so big and interesting
that communication has become more than a conduit,
it has become a destination in its own right..."
