AFT (Almost Free Text) is a document preparation system. It is mostly free form, meaning that there is little intrusive markup; AFT source documents look a lot like plain old ASCII text. It has a few rules for structuring your document, more to do with formatting your text than embedding lots of commands, and it produces all types of output (HTML, XHTML, LaTeX, roll-your-own XML, etc.). All that needs to be done is to edit a rule file. You can even customize your own rule files for specialized output.
Apache::Session is a persistence framework whose purpose is to provide session management to Web developers. It is designed to work with Apache and mod_perl, but it does not depend on them and will work with any Web server. This module provides a set of classes that give the developer maximum functionality. Session data can be stored in a database, flat files, or shared memory.
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.
bkmrkconv will convert Netscape's bookmarks.html file into a series of interconnected HTML pages which can be put online. The pages are heavily customizable and examples are included for a Yahoo-like portal. The program is useful for accessing your bookmarks from a remote machine or even just for making your links look prettier.
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.
Cog is a themeable and modularized intranet homepage written in Perl. The aim is to make almost every aspect configurable via the Web interface to give the user the freedom of choice. It includes modules to search various search engines, add links, and display news items, and a simple todo list.
Harvest-NG is a set of tools for building a standards-compliant Web crawler. It is implemented in Perl, and can provide a complete resource discovery system, along with a modular structure which allows others to easily customise the system to their own needs. The development of Harvest-NG was started as an attempt to preserve the strong features of the Harvest architecture, but to allow more rapid developing and prototyping from a cleaner, better structured codebase.
