Introduction by the original author


This modification allows to ship an order electronically by submitting data to
PayPal server which then returns a GIF file with a label that should be placed
onto the package. Most of the information is automatically filled out given the
order data.

This is especially useful to Canadians as Canada Post does not provide any API
to electronically ship Light Packets Air. It's very time consuming to ship them
in person at the local postal outlet. Luckily, PayPal allows to ship those via
Canada Post electronically.

What this modification does is pretend to be a human. It goes to the PayPal site
and traverses it filling in all the fields like a human would. That's all done
with PHP and Curl magic.
