dlkern downloads the current stable/beta/prepatch Linux kernel and its signature, and verifies the signature via GnuPG.pm. Versions are specified on the command line as -s (stable), -b (beta), or -p (pre-patch) (all 3 may be specified at once). Downloads are done via ncftpget, wget, or Net::FTP. It allows specification of 2-letter country code for the kernel mirror system, and selection of compression format (.gz/.bz2).
dmcat is a Digital Music CATalog program. Written in Perl, it recurses a physical directory, searching for digital music files, and builds a virtual catalog (out of symbolic links) in a sister directory. It currently only supports the MP3 format using ID3 tags. The following hierarchies are supported: Album, Artist, Artist_Album, Genre, Miscellaneous (catch-all), Title, and Year.
dobackup.pl is a flexible Perl script to handle unattended incremental backups of multiple servers. It handles multiple media sets with automatic media preparation and rotation, configurable 'what-to-backup', global per-host exclusion patterns, and user settable 'don't-back-this-up' metafiles. Its design goal is zero-maintenance, nothing to do except change the media when told.
dolt is a cross platform HTML preprocessor, which replaces specially formatted HTML comments with the contents of another file. It works much the same way as SSI, but without the server requirements, as files are processed before they are uploaded to a Web server. For example, it allows you to update a menu on every page by changing one file. This gives you some of the benefits of frames without any of the problems.
DreamBot is an experimental IRC bot totally written in Perl. Its main features include a totally dynamic user and channel list (no need to deal with text files), a learning ability that's similiar to infobot, built-in seen and topten talkers support, notes/memos, pasting of Freshmeat and Slashdot news, and Babelfish (Altavista) translation. DreamBot doesn't require any extra Perl modules.
drsync is a Perl wrapper for rsync which keeps track of the filelist between synchronizations. If you delete a file in one place, it will delete it in the other place; if you add a file, it copies to the other place. It is ideal for notebook users who want to keep data in two (or more) different places. It is also good for the Linux PDAs (Agenda, iPAQ, Yopi, etc.), to keep data synchronized with the desktop. The requirements are designed to be minimum.
Ecasound is a software package designed for multitrack audio processing. It can be used for simple tasks like audio playback, recording, and format conversions, as well as for multitrack effect processing, mixing, recording and signal recycling. It supports a wide range of audio inputs, outputs, and effect algorithms. Effects and audio objects can be combined in various ways, and their parameters can be controlled by operator objects like oscillators and MIDI-CCs. A versatile console-mode user interface is included in the package.
eDB is a very simple and easy-to-use collection of Perl 5 CGI scripts to perform searches on a flat-file database. Search results are displayed using HTML templates that can be modified to fit the user's needs. Pattern-based searches can be refined by using a range of values of a user-specified field. If desired, search results can be displayed using a paging procedure.
