Foswiki is wiki software, supporting the editing of Web pages in an ordinary Web browser by end users. What makes Foswiki special is that it supports the embedding of active and passive macros that enhance the page content (e.g. with global or dynamic information) and allow end-users to build applications that store and process data in a structured manner.
metaf2xml can download, parse, and decode aviation routine weather reports (METAR, SPECI, SAO), aerodrome forecasts (TAF), synoptic observations (SYNOP), and BUOY observations, and store the data as XML. XSLT style sheets convert it to plain language, as HTML or text. Current weather data from NOAA and other sources can be fetched and displayed.
Apache::Session is a persistence framework whose purpose is to provide session management to Web developers. It is designed to work with Apache and mod_perl, but it does not depend on them and will work with any Web server. This module provides a set of classes that give the developer maximum functionality. Session data can be stored in a database, flat files, or shared memory.
libintl-perl is a library that supports message translation for Perl, written in pure Perl (version 5.004 or better). A faster C version is also built and installed if the system fulfills all requirements. Its interface is a superset of the gettext family of functions in C, and it uses the same file formats as GNU gettext, making it possible to use all tools available for gettext itself and to seamlessly integrate internationalized Perl code into mixed-language projects.
File-Find-Object provides Perl programmers with an object-oriented alternative to the core File::Find module for traversing a directory structure, which has some serious interface limitations. As opposed to File::Find, File-Find-Object can be instantiated, can be interrupted in the middle, has an iterative interface, and can also return results as objects.
libsrs2 is the next generation SRS library. SPF verifies that the Sender address of an email message matches (according to some policy) the client IP address that submitted it. When a message is forwarded, the sender address must be rewritten to comply with SPF policy. The Sender Rewriting Scheme, or SRS, provides a standard for this rewriting that is not vulnerable to attacks by spammers, is easy to parse by common mail filters, and handles multiple hops neatly and safely.
The satpass script provides satellite visibility predictions, given the position of the observer and the NORAD element sets for the desired satellites. It can acquire the NORAD element sets directly from any site supported by Astro::SpaceTrack. It can acquire the observer's latitude and longitude from http://geocoder.us/, look up star positions in the SIMBAD catalog, and more.
