The Date::Calc package consists of a (pure-Perl) wrapper which either loads Date::Calc::XS (a separate implementation in C and XS) or Date::Calc::PP (a pure-Perl implementation which is part of the Date::Calc package). The Date::Calc::XS and Date::Calc::PP modules perform all kinds of date calculations based on the Gregorian calendar (the one used in all Western countries today), according to relevant norms and standards: ISO/R 2015-1971, DIN 1355 and, to some extent, ISO 8601 (where applicable). The package is designed as an efficient toolbox, not a bulky ready-made application. It provides extensive documentation and examples of use, multi-language support, and special functions for business needs.
The Date::Pcalc Perl module is a direct translation of Steffen Beyer's excellent Date::Calc module from a combination of C and Perl to Perl only. The Perl module does all kinds of date calculations based on the Gregorian calendar (the one used in all western countries today), thereby complying with all relevant norms and standards: ISO/R 2015-1971, DIN 1355 and, to some extent, ISO 8601 (where applicable).

Diogenes is a tool for searching and browsing the Latin and ancient Greek texts published on CD-ROM by the Packard Humanities Institute and the Thesaurus Linguae Graecae. It comes as an easy-to-install stand-alone application for GNU/Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows, based on the Firefox browser (i.e. Xulrunner). Alternatively, it can be installed by a network administrator as a server on a local network, and users then access it via an ordinary Web browser. There is also a command-line tool which can optionally format output as LaTeX instead of HTML.
