Poor Man's Cam

PMCam is a program that allows you to set up a webcam on a remote site through FTP and perl. It uses qcam to grab the image, mogrify to do the conversion to JPEG, and Net::FTP in perl to FTP the files to the server. The program's RC file should be configurable, though to allow any camera or converison programs.
