Perl-LZO (aka Compress::LZO) provides Perl bindings for the LZO data compression library. You can access the LZO library from your Perl scripts thereby compressing ordinary Perl strings. LZO is a portable lossless data compression library written in ANSI C. It offers pretty fast compression and very fast decompression. Decompression requires no memory. In addition there are slower compression levels achieving a quite competitive compression ratio while still decompressing at this very high speed.
OpenIsis provides a library and tools to access CDS/ISIS databases, which are mostly used for bibliographic data (ISO2709, Z39.50) but also well suited for other catalogues due to the very flexible indexing mechanism. Based on a C library, there are also bindings for Perl and Java (Tcl to come).
Device::ParallelPort is a Perl API that allows low level access to the parallel port of most computers. It does this by using a number of drivers, which can be customized and added to, including Linux (direct and parport), Win32, Script, Dummy, and more. It also contains a number of direct access devices including an example printer and a relay controller card.
CT Server is a Perl module that interfaces with Voicetronix computer telephony cards, giving developers a method of creating quick and creative computer telephony applications. A complete PBX is included as an example, which includes a Web interface for configuring and monitoring the PBX.
The TunePimp library is an audio file tagging library that uses MusicBrainz for track identification/lookup. It will attempt to automatically identify the files, and will present the user with possible matches for files that are not automatically identified. Once the files are identified, it writes new metadata tags to the music files and writes the files to a user-defined directory hierarchy. It supports WAV, MP3, Ogg Vorbis, and FLAC files.
