ACDK is a development framework with a similar target of Microsoft's .NET or Sun's ONE platform, but it uses C++ as a core implementation language. It implements the standard library packages, including acdk::lang, acdk::lang::reflect, acdk::util, acdk::io, acdk::text (including regexpr), acdk::net, acdk::sql, acdk::xml, and more. Flexible allocator/garbage collection, threading, and Unicode are implemented in the core of ACDK. Extensions make C++ objects available for reflection, serialization, aspect-oriented class attributes, and [D]ynamic [M] ethod [I]nvocation. This DMI acts as an universal object oriented call interface to connect C++ with scripting languages (Java, Perl, Tcl, Python, Lisp, Visual Basic, and VBScript) and standard component technologies (CORBA and COM).
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.
The DBIx::Perlish module provides the ability to work with databases supported by the DBI module using Perl's own syntax for the four most common operations: SELECT, UPDATE, DELETE, and INSERT. By using DBIx::Perlish, you can write most of your database queries using a domain-specific language with Perl syntax. However, the module is not intended to replace all use of SQL in your program. The DBIx::Perlish module quite intentionally neither implements nor cares about database administration tasks like schema design and management.
Search::Xapian is a Perl XS frontend to the Xapian C++ search library. It is a fairly complete wrapper: most features of the Xapian library are made available for use from Perl. Xapian is a highly adaptable toolkit that allows developers to easily add advanced indexing and search facilities to their own applications. It supports the Probabilistic Information Retrieval model as well as a rich set of boolean query operators. It's fast and scalable to hundreds of millions of documents.
WebTools is "system" of multiple modules and libraries. Along with template engine capabilities, it features session management, global variables support, cookies support, and various database interfaces. It also features a pure Perl mail client, categories management, form checking, and libraries such as a CGI-based downloading library, HTML parsers, and a library that makes PHP functions available to Perl for ease of development.
Zoidberg (a.k.a. zoid) provides a modular Perl shell written, configured, and operated entirely in Perl. It aspires to be a fully operational login shell with all the features one normally expects. But it also gives direct access to Perl objects and data structures from the command line, and allows you to run Perl code within the scope of your command line.
