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.
Aphid (the Apache/Perl HTTP Installation Daemon) provides a quick facility for compiling and installing the Apache Web server with support for SSL via mod_ssl, and with the embedded Perl interpreter provided by mod_perl. It downloads, compiles, and installs the software into the directory of your choice. Aphid places emphasis on providing an intuitive, browser-based interface and keeping a tiny distribution footprint. To date Aphid has been tested on Rehat Linux 6 and 6.2, FreeBSD 4.0, and Solaris 2.6 and 7.
Basilisk is a full-featured middleware library to develop games. It features sprites, animations, real time sound mixing with filters and special effects, high resolution timers, a basic 3D math library, an input system based on bindable actions, fullscreen exclusive mode support, resolution managers, JDK 5.0 compatibility, and more.
Battletech MUX is an Internet based, real-time rendition of the popular Battletech board game. Players take to the front lines in their very own mechs, tanks, and similar implements of destruction. Featuring an internal scripting language called SoftCode, game admins may sculpt their sites into whatever they can imagine, be it small-scale combat or massive, galactic conflict.
Blackarts is a tool for creating web based documentation repositories from interesting information that shows up in email. It was designed to solve the problem whereby a company or association gathers important documentation in email conversations that never gets recorded in a way that is easily accessible later. Blackarts creates mail gateways to multiple document repositories that have tables of contents, sections and section crosslinking.
The CDDB/CDDB_get Perl module gets the CDDB info for an audio CD. The included script was intended as a demo for CDDB_get, but over time it has gained powerful features like the ability to write to a database, offline mode, HTTP mode (including proxy), saving in standard XMCD format, and writing 'lame' commands.
CGI::Application is a Perl framework intended to make it easier to create sophisticated, reusable Web-based applications. This module implements a methodology which can make Web software easier to design, easier to document, easier to write, and easier to evolve. CGI::Application builds on standard, non-proprietary technologies and techniques, such as the Common Gateway Interface and Lincoln D. Stein's excellent CGI.pm module. CGI::Application judiciously avoids employing technologies and techniques which would bind a developer to any one set of tools, operating system, or Web server.
