Currect Version: 1.3
Update Date: 08/22/2007

Change Log:
After last week's "curmb" patch, this is the latest addition to the class.

This time another service Yahoo! Calendar has been added to the list. Users can enter their
Yahoo! account detail to login and fetch their Yahoo! Calendar (CSV for Outlook) in an array format.

This class is used to grab Yahoo! Address Book, Messenger List, Number of Unread Mails in the Inbox and Yahoo! Calendar.
With the Yahoo! Account's username and password, the class uses cURL support to authenticate user on Yahoo! and
create an array list of service choosen by the user.

Services that the class support at the moment are:
1. Address Book
2. Messenger List
3. Number of Unread Mails
4. Calendar

If you are running script on localhost and you require proxy server to browse set the isUsingProxy
variable to true and specify proxy host name port number.

This class is designed in such way that it does not keep any track of cookie set for user when logged
in to Yahoo! account and generated array of either Address Book or Messenger List.

The test file test.php has the options set for users to view. class.GrabYahoo.php has list of Public
Variables that you can set.
