Aphid (the Apache/Perl HTTP Installation Daemon) provides a quick facility for compiling and installing the Apache Web server with support for SSL via mod_ssl, and with the embedded Perl interpreter provided by mod_perl. It downloads, compiles, and installs the software into the directory of your choice. Aphid places emphasis on providing an intuitive, browser-based interface and keeping a tiny distribution footprint. To date Aphid has been tested on Rehat Linux 6 and 6.2, FreeBSD 4.0, and Solaris 2.6 and 7.
The CDDB/CDDB_get Perl module gets the CDDB info for an audio CD. The included script was intended as a demo for CDDB_get, but over time it has gained powerful features like the ability to write to a database, offline mode, HTTP mode (including proxy), saving in standard XMCD format, and writing 'lame' commands.
ctrlxmms is a small Perl script designed to increase the useability of XMMS. With it, you can use most of the common GUI functions of XMMS from the CLI. You also have a few handy commands which are not available from the GUI. Together with lirc and a remote (eg. Anir Multimedia Magic), this is a wonderful tool.
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.
Orac is a GUI tool for Database Administrators written in Perl, Tk, and DBI. It organizes many useful DBA scripts into a nice graphical interface, for collecting statistics on your database, or diagnosing problems. It currently supports Oracle, Sybase, and Informix. Richard Sutherland's DDL::Oracle Perl module has been integrated with the current version for the Oracle side of things, greatly improving the Oracle developer options on the program.
