I'm looking for someone that can offer me a program (also the source code) to check if a yahoo messenger user is online (invisible or online) or offline.
This needs to be independently made from existing website services and from what I think it should do the following:
- connect to yahoo servers with given source/bot id (from command line let's say)
- send avatar packet (or whatever other method is better) to target id and check the reply and also announce the status of the target
I think this can be easily done by taking examples from existing messenger clients (like pidgin for example) and sending the required hex codes corresponding to internal yahoo messages.
I'm not sure which programming language would be easier to use for this purpose.
