The IPC::SharedCache Perl module provides a shared-memory cache accessed as a tied hash. Shared memory is an area of memory that is available to all processes. It is accessed by choosing a key. Every process that accesses shared memory with the same key gets access to the same region of memory. This module attempts to make shared memory easy to use for one specific application -- a shared memory cache.
TCB::Seminar is a DBIx::Frame object that was written to keep track of group seminars for the Theoretical and Computational Biophysics Group at UIUC. It provides an administrative Web interface for adding, modifying, or deleting this information, and a public interface for outside users and group members to access but not modify most information.
find_used_modules looks over your entire system and figures out which modules people are using. It then builds a Perl script that can be used to test to make sure that all those modules are available. The purpose of all this is to allow Perl to be upgraded without breaking too many installed Perl programs.
Perl Beans is an implementation of the Java Beans framework in Perl. The implementation is not even close to being complete. While a number of class stubs have been provided, most of the interesting parts are still not functional. In particular, the entire event model is absent, along with the persistence mechanisms. However, over time there is a reasonable chance that the missing pieces will be filled in.
TCB::Publications a DBIx::Frame object written to keep track of group publications for the Theoretical and Computational Biophysics Group at UIUC. It provides an administrative Web interface for adding, modifying, or deleting this information; an internal interface, for group members to access but not modify most information; and a public interface for outside users to search for publications, read abstracts, and download fulltext copies of the papers.
