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.
CGI::Application::Generator provides a means by which a CGI::Application-based module can be created from code, as opposed to being written by hand. This module is intended to create the shell of an application module, based on the specification you provide. It will not output a completely functional application without additional coding. It will, however, create the structural parts of your application common to all CGI::Application-based modules. This module is intended to ease the creation of new CGI::Application modules and to encourage standardization of CGI::Application coding styles.
Web Log Trends Analyzer provides a work-around for a "bug" in some popular commercial Log Analyzer products, which makes them unable to process multiple log files for overlapping periods of time. If you like your commercial Log Analyzer, and don't feel like upgrading just yet, this little Perl script will do the trick nicely. Simply specify a list of all your log files, and it will consolidate them into a single log file, sorted by time. The output log will work with your commercial Log Analyzer product without a hitch, allowing you to continue using it to generate reports.
