Catch the Furball is an icebreaker board game intended for friends to play around a computer. It features a freshly-generated board for each game, an eclectic collection of cards, and beautiful pictures of Cambridge University. The distribution is intended both to allow Web masters to quickly set up their own copy of the game, and to allow tinkerers to use the game engine to make their own games. It includes the editor used to create game data.
Class::EHierarchy is intended for use as a base class for custom objects. The objects need one or more of the following features: orderly bottom-up destruction of objects, opaque objects, class-based access restrictions for properties and methods, primitive strict property type awareness, and alias-based object retrieval.
Hailo is a fast and lightweight markov engine intended to replace AI::MegaHAL. It has a Mouse (or Moose) based core with pluggable storage, tokenizer, and engine backends. It is similar to MegaHAL in functionality. The main differences (with the default backends) are better scalability, drastically less memory usage, an improved tokenizer, and tidier output. With this distribution, you can create, modify, and query Hailo brains. To use Hailo in event-driven POE applications, you can use the POE::Component::Hailo wrapper. One example is POE::Component::IRC::Plugin::Hailo, which implements an IRC chat bot.
The Mobile Web Proxy is a (CGI) tool to make more Web pages available from some mobile devices (cell phone Web browsers, etc.). It employs tag cleaning and paging so that Web pages it can access have far greater chances of being rendered on devices that cannot display overly large or complex pages. It is simple, but it seems to substantially extend the portion of the Web available from devices that otherwise display messages like "413: Page cannot be displayed."
OpenBeacon is a open and generic design for an active wireless transceiver device hardware that operates in the 2.4GHz ISM band. The tag contains a unique serial number, but may have other information like acceleration measurement. The OpenBeacon tag is designed as a transceiver device, and therefore both transmits and receives radio waves. The intention of this project is to offer a wide range of use cases such as visitor or item tracking and wireless remote control with a free self-contained and low-cost RFID design. It enables wireless remote control application and ultra low power wireless meshing nodes.
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.
The Data Mine is a search engine designed to make a more useful interface available to users. It is designed around human-computer intelligent interaction considerations. It divides the screen into two halves. One lets you find all the instances of your query's keywords, and the other lets you look through a highlighted version of the results you choose.
