I don't know about Net::XMPP, but I just wrote a simple script that
does exactly that for Net::XMPP2, you maybe want to try it, you can
find the script in the git repository for Net::XMPP2:


It should work with a recent CPAN release of Net::XMPP2 or the version
in the repository. See also http://www.ta-sa.org/net_xmpp2

You start the script like this:

   # ./retrieve_roster testjid at server.tld yoursecretpassword

It should then just connect and print the stuff to stdout or
timeout if something gets stuck. Or print an error if something
unexpected happened.
