Xapian is a search engine library, scalable to collections containing hundreds of millions of documents. It's written in C++ with bindings for Perl, Python, PHP, Java, Tcl, C#, Ruby, and Lua. It 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 and also a rich set of boolean query operators. Omega is a Web search application built upon the Xapian library. It can index a Web server's document tree (including HTML, PDF, OpenOffice, MS Word/Excel/Powerpoint/Works, WordPerfect, RTF, PS, etc.), or data exported from arbitrary sources (e.g. SQL databases).
AnyEvent provides an identical interface to multiple event loops. This allows module authors to utilize an event loop without forcing module users to use the same event loop (as only a single event loop can coexist peacefully at any one time). The interface itself is vaguely similar but not identical to the Event module. On the first call of any method, the module tries to detect the currently loaded event loop by probing for an already-loaded event loop, such as Glib or Event. The first one found is used. If none is found, the module tries to load an event module, and failing that, it will fall back to an optimized pure Perl implementation.
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.
Zero RRD Framework provides a central HTTP-based service for importing into standard RRD databases and for generating graphs. A lightweight, easily extendable agent for the data sources pushes updates with minimal resource consumption to the master service using HTTP. With the introduction of VMs for the service, it's easy to test-drive the application and even the architecture (connecting agents to the service in the VM).
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.
Amethyst started as a port of Infobot to POE, continuing as a generic bot core with the ability to handle multiple connections using different protocols (not necessarily IRC) and soft route the incoming messages through a number of processing centres. One of these processing centres contains much of the original Infobot core.
The SQLB Perl module provide a simple API to interface SQL Load Balancer within Perl scripts. It allows you to interface your scripts with Oracle, MySQL, or PostgreSQL easily and efficiently. You can change your database type easily, the only changes required in your scripts being to queries with database-specific options.
