I asked this question awhile back and I'm not sure if it has changed since 1.4.1 or 1.4.5 versions of webos.

My app uses a sql lite database that I'd like to be able to backup to a csv file and email to the user.

With the advent of PDK I think this is possible by executing Perl scripts from within the app, but I am at a loss as how to do this.

I am seeing more and more webOS apps with this functionality.

I have been telling users to use the Pre Backup Utility which not only will backup my application data but their entire device as well.

Ideally, what I'd like to do is have a service scheduled to run every week or so that automatically runs a backup and emails directly to the user with no interaction.
