oAuth Can't Post

I have just gotten into programming, and I am trying to understand the basics. One of the first programs I am trying to write is in perl, on linux, posting to tumblr. I have installed all pre-reqs, but need some help to get started. I am trying to write a script that will post an image to tumblr (Example: image.jpg). I have looked around this forum, and the internet for some help to get started, but can not find or make sense of the information that has been given to me. I am looking for someone to help me write a perl scipt for some help in this area. I do not want them to do it for me, but help... I am trying to do this as a learning experience. Thank you in advance.

Re: [landon] oAuth [In reply to] Can't Post

One of the first things I do when looking at a pending, comprehensive task is query whether there exists a Perl Module that does what I need to do. Searching for tumblr on the cpan site yields two Module candidates:

1. WWW::Tumblr
2. WebService::Tumblr

The first clearly shows how to upload an image. The second, however, is missing some documentation, as it says, data - An image file. See File uploads below., but there's no File uploads section to be found.

Given this, I'd try WWW::Tumblr first, as its examples are well written.

Hope this helps!

Thanks for the post. I have looked at a few of these, and even wrote something like this once upon a time. The problem with these is that they use xAuth, and not oAuth.

Sorry this wasn't helpful.

I believe I may have seen your postings on this topic on and Hopefully, you may get good direction at one of those sites or possibly still here...
