CHI provides a unified caching API for Perl, designed to assist a developer in persisting data for a specified period of time. The CHI interface is implemented by driver classes that support fetching, storing, and clearing of data. Driver classes exist or will exist for the gamut of storage backends available to Perl, such as memory, plain files, memory mapped files, memcached, and DBI. CHI is intended as an evolution of DeWitt Clinton's Cache::Cache package, adhering to the basic Cache API but adding new features and addressing limitations in the Cache::Cache implementation.
The CPAN shell (and module) automates or at least simplifies the building and installation of Perl modules and extensions. It includes some primitive searching capabilities and knows how to use Net::FTP, LWP, and certain external download clients to fetch distributions from the Internet. Then it automatically tests and installs them and their dependencies.
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.
Cafeterra is a message queue-based EAI project with a Web user interface for designing, processing, and monitoring inter-application data flows. Supported connectors are based on an RDBMS, flat files (CSV, fixed length record, XML, HL7, HTML, etc.), LDAP, and SOAP, with others planned. The main features are message tracking and archival, joining different connectors, an internal scheduler, and raising the flow on events.
Carp::Clan is a module that reports errors from the perspective of the caller of a "clan" of modules, similar to "Carp.pm" itself. Instead of giving it a number of levels to skip on the calling stack, you give it a pattern to characterize the package names of the "clan" of modules which shall never be blamed for any error. These modules stick together like a "clan" and any error that occurs will be blamed on the "outsider" script or modules not belonging to this "clan".
Catalyst::Authentication::Store::DBI is a Perl module that implements the Catalyst::Authentication API using Catalyst::Model::DBI. It uses DBI to allow applications to authenticate users against a database and it provides support for roles with Catalyst::Plugin::Authorization::Roles.
