tumblr (setup|write|read|authenticate|check-vimeo|check-audio) [options]+

   tumblr.rb is a command line utility and library which interfaces to the
   excellent tumblr blogging platform @ http://www.tumblr.com

   tumblr.rb implements the complete restful api in both library and
   command line utility, doccumented in full @ http://www.tumblr.com/api

   === install ===

     gem install tumblr

   === cli ===

     the cli exactly mirrors the library api. arguments are passed to each
     method as 'key=val' pairs, values may be read from files using the
     syntax 'key=file=val' or 'key==val'

     you should first cache your login info to avoid having to pass it everytime

       cfp: ~> tumblr setup --email=my_email --password=my_password --name=drawohara

     you can post

       cfp: ~> tumblr write regular title=testing body=rock_on

     you can post from files

       cfp: ~> tumblr write regular title=slurp body==./post.html

     you can read

       cfp: ~> tumblr read start=42 num=42

     you can test the auth

       cfp: ~> tumblr authenticate


   === api ===

     it's pretty simple. here's a start, use the web docs to figure out the

       config = {
         :email => my_email,
         :password => my_password,
         :name => 'drawohara'

       tumblr = Tumblr.for config

       abort unless tumblr.uri == 'http://drawohara.tumblr.com'

       response = tumblr.write :regular, :title = title, :body => body

       video = open 'video.mpg'
       response = tumblr.write :video, :data => video, :title => video.path

       response = tumblr.read :start => 42, :num => 42
       xml = response.content

       response = tumblr.read :start => 42, :num => 42, :json => true
       json = response.content

   --name=name, -n (1 ~> name)
   --email=email, -e (1 ~> email)
   --password=password, -p (1 ~> password)
   --debug, -d
   --json, -j
   --help, -h
