The Paranoid modules provide a number of routines that are intended for use in strict and taint-safe scripts. The modules cover a variety of tasks from command-line argument parsing to process and network management. All of the modules use a debug trace framework for diagnostic output that is easily used and extended for application code as well.
Class::EHierarchy is intended for use as a base class where hierarchally ordered objects are desired. This class allows you to define a parent - child relationship between objects and ensures an orderly destruction of objects according to that relationship, instead of perl's reverse order destruction sequence based on reference counting.
Oww (One-Wire Weather) is a client program for Dallas Semiconductor / AAG 1-wire weather station kits, providing a graphical (animated) display to monitor outside temperature, wind speed and direction, rainfall, and humidity. Extra temperature sensors may be added. A 1-wire "hub" may be used for improved reliability and range. Weather data may be logged to CSV files, parsed to command line programs, sent to the Henriksen Windows client, or uploaded to Web servers at Dallas, The Weather Underground, and HAMweather.
autofwd is an automated firewalling daemon intended to block hosts performing unwanted acts. While it was designed to be used to thwart hosts running dictionary attacks on logins (of any service), it can be used for just about anything. The external commands it runs are configurable, allowing you to take additional actions against offending hosts such as running an nmap OS fingerprint before firewalling, or just silently logging the event.
pgAdmin III is an administration and management tool for the PostgreSQL database and derivative products such as EnterpriseDB, Mammoth PostgreSQL, Pervasive Postgres, and SRA PowerGres. It includes a graphical administration interface, an SQL query tool with grahical EXPLAIN, a procedural code editor, an SQL/shell/batch scheduling agent, Slony-I management, and much more. It is designed to answer the needs of most users, from writing simple SQL queries to developing complex databases. The graphical interface supports all PostgreSQL features and makes administration easy.
CGI::Application is a Perl framework intended to make it easier to create sophisticated, reusable Web-based applications. This module implements a methodology which can make Web software easier to design, easier to document, easier to write, and easier to evolve. CGI::Application builds on standard, non-proprietary technologies and techniques, such as the Common Gateway Interface and Lincoln D. Stein's excellent CGI.pm module. CGI::Application judiciously avoids employing technologies and techniques which would bind a developer to any one set of tools, operating system, or Web server.
libphidgets is a user-space access library for the Phidget devices. It provides a generic and flexible way to access and interact with the Phidgets, and comes with all the advantages of a user-space library. It is based on libhid (which is based on libusb), thus it requires no HID support in the kernel. Furthermore, it aims to support all operating system supported by libusb/libhid: Linux, BSD, OS X, and Windows.
