The Perl HL7 Toolkit provides a simple but flexible Perl toolkit for using the HL7 protocol. The toolkit consists of a Perl API for manipulating HL7 messages, an implementation of a pluggable forking HL7 server for developing HL7 capable applications in Perl, and a queue daemon for polling non-HL7 queues, like database, filesystems, etc., and translating messages in these queues into HL7 (and vice-versa).

Release Notes: Small fixes were made for better handling of (sub)components in fields.
Release Notes: This release adds an important security fix to prevent execution of arbitrary code, a small documentation fix, and a removeSegmentByName method.
Release Notes: A bug in Message.pm was fixed: a new message from string with subcomponents didn't produce a correct string with toString. getSegmentAsString and getSegmentFieldAsString methods were added to Message.
Release Notes: This release fixes the MANIFEST; the previous release is broken.
Release Notes: This release is mainly an internal rebuild of the Message and Segment classes. Internal storage of the message is now an array of arrays (of arrays...), which should be much more efficient in manipulating the message. One important enhancement is that creating a new Message now results in an EMPTY message. Before, an MSH segment was automatically added. This feature has been removed, since we do not always want an MSH segment. This means that this version is not backward compatible.
