[smokeping-users] Calling external scripts - how do I?

I am running 1.16 on Solaris and said application has been running very 
well.  I have email notification working well and I'm very happy with it 
 so far.  I need to go to the next level and call an external script. 
 How do I call a script when an alert is raised.  I searched the 
documentation and archives, and found no examples.  Looking at 
Smokeping.pm in the notification code I see:
if ($cfg->{Alerts}{to} =~ /^\|(.+)/) {
which triggers a system call to an external script.  Here is my 
question, how does this get set?  For example if I had a script 
/var/tmp/foo.pl what do I need to do, I can't get it to work.  I'm sorry 
for the simple question, but I am stumped.

Thanks in advance.
