Well, it doesn't take much to be a real developer, however, you are going 
to have to learn to wrap your lines in mail :-)

Ahhh, you have asked a tough question. You will need to be a real man to 
attempt this.

Check the Makefile and look at tools like smbclient or the net command.

See how they do it.

You will probably be better off to add your program to or and work from there.
