WebGUI is a content management framework built to allow average business users to build and maintain complex Web sites. It is modular, pluggable, and platform independent. It was designed to allow the people who create the content to manage it online, rather than content management taking up the time of busy IT staff. WebGUI comes with a full host of features including shopping cart, subscriptions, forums, photo galleries, FAQs, link lists, blogs, SQL reports, a Web services interface, and a very configurable user privilege and profiling system.
isbn.pl contains a single, simple function which returns a book record from the US Library of Congress based on a single incoming ISBN. It is intended for use in other packages, such as barcode reader drivers, to provide users of those tools with the extensive cataloging metadata librarians have created over the years. It differs from other tools seen so far in that the data returned is in the MARC format, the heavily used, ancient metadata standard originally based on library catalog cards. It thus provides much data in a known syntax via a known query protocol (z39.50, using Zeta), rather than via Web page screen scraping.
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.
