xlog has been giving me faithful service, taking log data from fldigi and 
exporting it as adif for eqsl and lotw. Only thing missing was upload 
automation, particularly for eqsl.

In the linux tradition, I have created a program for this purpose. It runs, and 
watches an xlog log file for write activity. When this is detected, it locates 
any new (or altered) qso records, and uploads them if they are complete. 
(fldigi or the operator sometimes logs incomplete records :-))
Normally this occur as each qso is logged

It is strictly an alpha release, but it's only a few hundred lines of python, 
and it might be useful to somebody.

Get it from http://www.whabbit.demon.co.uk/xlog-uploader01apr.tgz
You will need to edit two files - in upload.py you have to put in eqsl name and 
password, and in watch.py the xlog filename


options are

-d to clear the record for a log file - this will cause all records to be 
uploaded again on the next change
-n inhibits actual upload, but still records the qso as 'known'
-l file lets you supply an alternate xlog filename

You can control individual log entries - if the remarks field contains upload 
or !upload, then the entry will (if complete enough) or won't be uploaded.

You'll need python 2.6 and the inotify module for python - http://trac.dbzteam.org/pyinotify

Let me know if this is any use - I am considering adding LOTW, but the tqsllib is a deal more work to hook to python.

I don't use eqsl, so I can't really test this for you. If by chance you ever port it to LoTW I'll be more than glad to test it.

I did forward this to the linuxham group at yahoo. Its the "official" fldigi list. In the future you may want to consider posting to this group also. As the list moderator I would welcome any and all comments.

I want to say thanks for your contribution to Xlog and fldigi, it is appreciated.

Take care....73
