My code doesn't abend, it loops to ∞

I've seen the syslog approach to creating a pop-up mentioned but not implemented.  The attached is a "proof of concept" perl script that I hacked together.   There are some comments in the code.  If you are more proficient in perl than I am (which wouldn't take much!), feel free to use, improve, or do with it what you will.

I put together a .NET application that sends out a Growl notification with the caller name and photo from your Google contacts. I've been using it for the last few days to display the caller id information on my HTPC and the laptops around the house. If anyone is interested, let me know. Thanks to everyone who provided information and scripts previously on this thread.

Thanks for the starting point. I made some changes. I'm no perl whiz but I was bored. Its only been tested with no name for callerID and usa phone number. It now uses an external script for extra convenience. Everything uses regex instead of position based stuffs. Eventually I want to have it connect to my Google contacts and match phone numbers to names (using gdata). It shouldn't be too difficult to have the picture on the popups as well. 

CID-notify-send is the script for notify-send and xbmc notifications.

Thanks for improving and sharing. I was bored and lazy (well, lazy is a given) at the time I put it together. My old brain hasn't fully embraced regex. I should have my secret decoder ring taken away.

For those of us who aren't programmers, is there a simple program that can do this.  Display caller id on the computer that is.

Thanks.

Sure, Obi2Yac can.  Search the threads here or Google and you will find it.

Thanks.  I tried Obi2Yak.  Still a little more complicated than I wanted.

I ended up installing GrowlerID (http://riotouslabs.com/Products/GrowlerID).  Even though it's not supported, it worked great as a standalone application.

Did anything ever become of this?

It would be great to get a notification on the pc with the available CID information before deciding to get up and answer the phone.
