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.
Class::Date provides a date datatype for Perl. You can create new Class::Date objects with a constructor from different scalar formats, array refs, and hash refs, and then you can easily manipulate it by the builtin "+" and "-" operators (e.g., $date=date([2001,03,15])+'3Y 1s'). Relative date types also available.
DXSpider is a Ham Radio program that connects to other similar programs by radio or the internet and provides a real-time information service to Ham Radio operators rather like IRC. It is designed to become a complete replacement for the original DOS implementation written by Dick Newell AK1A.
Device::ParallelPort is a Perl API that allows low level access to the parallel port of most computers. It does this by using a number of drivers, which can be customized and added to, including Linux (direct and parport), Win32, Script, Dummy, and more. It also contains a number of direct access devices including an example printer and a relay controller card.
Elvis is a clone of vi/ex, the standard UNIX editor. Elvis supports nearly all of the vi/ex commands, in both visual mode and ex mode. Elvis adds support for multiple files, multiple windows, a variety of display modes including "hex" and "html", on-line help, WYSIWYG printing, and other miscellaneous extensions.
Embperl gives you the power to embed Perl code in your HTML or XML/XSLT documents and the ability to build your Web site out of small reusable objects in an OO-style. It can also build taglibs and use caching. You can also take advantage of hundreds of Perl modules which have already been written for such tasks as database access to a growing number of database systems. Embperl has several features especially useful for creating HTML, including dynamic tables, formfield-processing, escaping/unescaping, session handling, and more. Embperl is a server-side tool, which means that it's browser-independent. It can run in various ways: under mod_perl, as a CGI script, or offline.
File-Find-Object-Rule is a port of File-Find-Rule to make it use File-Find-Object instead of File::Find. It provides a succinct, declarative syntax for creating directory tree traversal routines while enjoying the advantages of File-Find-Object, such as traversing the tree incrementally and iteratively, and the capability of instantiating several traversers in the same program.
GSview is a graphical interface for Ghostscript, an interpreter for the PostScript page description language used by laser printers. For documents following the Adobe PostScript Document Structuring Conventions, it allows selected pages to be viewed or printed. GSview requires Ghostscript 7 or later.
IRC Channel Relay Bot allows you to have an IRC channel span multiple IRC networks. It relays public and private messages, informs you about people joining and leaving the channel, and passes topics across networks (if you op it). It has minimal ability to help protect the channel.
Inq is a scripting language for client/server systems. The server provides transaction, persistence, concurrency, and events support. The client is presently desktop only, though Web clients are planned. Inq uses a generic node structure throughout and reification techniques to obviate boilerplate code, especially in the areas of persistence and MVC.
