IO::Skype is a Perl package for communication with the Skype IM client.

It uses the DBus interface and is therefore restricted to Linux platforms so far. However, DBus and the Skype protocol stack are pretty much decoupled in the package, such that a migration to other interfaces should be possible without much effort.
