Brace is a dialect of C that looks like Python. It has coroutines, hygenic macros, header generation, and libraries with graphics and sound. It is meant to be good for beginners, kids, and experts. Brace is translated to C, then compiled, with #! support and cached executables. It is fairly portable, and runs on GNU/Linux, Unix, and Windows with MinGW. It should also run on Mac OS X. It comes with a lot of demo programs, many with animated graphics.
XML-Grammar-Fiction is a Perl package that provides processors for lightweight markup languages and corresponding XML grammars for writing prose (e.g. stories, novels, and novellas) as well as screenplays. The XML grammars can in turn be translated to XHTML and DocBook/XML. XML-Grammar-Fiction currently offers only very basic functionality, but has good support for UTF-8 and allows one to write bidirectional texts conveniently. It is still under development and may exhibit some quirks.
OCS Inventory is an application designed to help a network or system administrator keep track of the configuration and software of computers that are installed on the network. Information about hardware and operating system are collected. OCS Inventory is also able to detect all active devices on your network, such as switches, routers, network printers, and unattended devices. It also allows you to deploy software, commands, or files on client computers.
Schedule::Cron is a Perl module that provides a simple but complete cron-like scheduler. It can be used for periodically executing Perl subroutines. The philosophy behind Schedule::Cron is to call subroutines periodically from within one single Perl program instead of letting cron trigger several (possibly different) Perl scripts. Everything under one roof. Furthermore, Schedule::Cron provides a mechanism to create crontab entries dynamically, which isn't that easy with cron. It knows about all extensions (at least all extensions the author is aware of, i.e those of "Vixie" cron) for crontab entries like ranges including 'steps', specification of month and days of the week by name, or coexistence of lists and ranges in the same field. It even supports a bit more (like lists and ranges with symbolic names). It has existed since 1999 on CPAN and is successfully used in many projects.
Dancer is a Perl framework for building Web applications with minimal effort. It started as a port of Ruby's Sinatra project, but has grown on its own path. A Dancer app can run as a standalone Web server or from any Web server using PSGI. It lets the user write an application with very few lines of code. It's powerful and flexible enough to knock up a simple Web site or Web service very quickly, and can scale to much larger projects. Building a Web application with Dancer is as easy as loading the library and defining route handlers. Dancer provides an elegant syntax for defining route handlers, can render views with a variety of template engines, supports static file serving, session support, and many more features.
