PicoGUI aims to be a complete GUI environment for handheld computers and other embedded systems. It uses a client/server model, like the X window system, but while an X server is given raw drawing commands, the PicoGUI server integrates a widget set, making PicoGUI clients small and efficient. PicoGUI also has the goal of allowing client/server connections over a variety of mechanisms. It is most commonly used with Linux, but is designed to be portable to any OS. PicoGUI has a variety of video and input drivers which allow it to interface with the Linux framebuffer device, SDL, the X window system, and several other devices.
The HTML::Defaultify Perl module is designed to allow CGI programmers to present forms with some fields filled in, which is handy for letting users correct bad input, show records to be edited, and much more. The main function, defaultify(), takes any block of HTML and a hash of field names and values, and returns the HTML with the form fields set to those values. Value lists for multiple same-named fields are supported, as are pages with multiple forms. Several different input formats are supported for compatibility with existing tools.
DogPerl is an offline Perl/Tk widget documentation resource. It includes an adjustable interface. Since it is a reference to detailed information about Tk widgets as they can be used in Perl, the program does not do much. It is an encyclopedia for Tk within Perl. However, font color, size, face, and style can be customized easily. Page background color, border size, and paragraph spacing are also customizable. The program illustrates the use of Perl/Tk.
BabelKit is an interface to a universal multilingual database code table. It takes all of the programming work out of maintaining multiple database code definition sets in multiple languages. The code administration and translation page lets developers define new virtual code tables, new languages, enter all codes and their descriptions, and then translate them into all languages of interest. Perl and PHP classes retrieve the code descriptions and automatically generate HTML code selection elements in the user's language. This makes internationalization and localization of Web sites and database interfaces much easier.
Eidetic is a middleware library for building database driven applications with Perl and Template::Toolkit. It provides handlers for displaying, editing, searching, and administrating data. It provides an interface-generic way of building db apps allowing Web, command line, or daemon styles of interfaces. It is currently used by several applications, including STP, docsys, and rackview.
