The Perl 4 concept of packages has been extended in Perl 5 and a new standardised form of reusable software component has been defined: the Module. Perl 5 Modules typically conform to certain guidelines which make them easier to use, reuse, integrate and extend. This list will be posted to comp.lang.perl.announce and comp.answers on a semi-regular basis. It has two key aims: - FOR DEVELOPERS: To change duplication of effort into cooperation. - FOR USERS: To quickly locate existing software which can be reused. This list includes the Perl 5 standard modules, other completed modules, work-in-progress modules and would-be-nice-to-have ideas for modules. It also includes guidelines for those wishing to create new modules including how to name them. Where Are The Modules Kept? Most, but not all, of the modules can be found within CPAN, the Comprehensive Perl Archive Network of mirrored FTP sites. Within the CPAN scheme the modules described in this list can be found in the modules/ directory below the CPAN root directory. These are the currently registered CPAN sites: Africa South Africa ftp://ftp.is.co.za/programming/perl/CPAN/ ftp://ftpza.co.za/pub/mirrors/cpan/ Asia Armenia ftp://sunsite.aua.am/pub/CPAN/ China ftp://freesoft.cei.gov.cn/pub/languages/perl/CPAN/ Hong Kong ftp://ftp.hkstar.com/pub/CPAN/ Israel ftp://bioinfo.weizmann.ac.il/pub/software/perl/CPAN/ Japan ftp://ftp.dti.ad.jp/pub/lang/CPAN/ ftp://ftp.jaist.ac.jp/pub/lang/perl/CPAN/ ftp://ftp.lab.kdd.co.jp/lang/perl/CPAN/ ftp://mirror.nucba.ac.jp/mirror/Perl/ Singapore ftp://ftp.nus.edu.sg/pub/unix/perl/CPAN/ South Korea ftp://ftp.bora.net/pub/CPAN/ ftp://ftp.nuri.net/pub/CPAN/ Taiwan ftp://ftp.wownet.net/pub2/PERL/ Thailand ftp://ftp.cs.riubon.ac.th/pub/mirrors/CPAN/ ftp://ftp.nectec.or.th/pub/mirrors/CPAN/ Australasia Australia ftp://cpan.topend.com.au/pub/CPAN/ ftp://ftp.sage-au.org.au/pub/compilers/perl/CPAN/ ftp://mirror.aarnet.edu.au/pub/perl/CPAN/ New Zealand ftp://ftp.auckland.ac.nz/pub/perl/CPAN/ ftp://sunsite.net.nz/pub/languages/perl/CPAN/ Central America Costa Rica ftp://ftp.ucr.ac.cr/pub/Unix/CPAN/ Europe Austria ftp://ftp.tuwien.ac.at/pub/languages/perl/CPAN/ Belgium ftp://ftp.kulnet.kuleuven.ac.be/pub/mirror/CPAN/ Bulgaria ftp://ftp.ntrl.net/pub/mirrors/CPAN/ Croatia ftp://ftp.linux.hr/pub/CPAN/ Czech Republic ftp://ftp.fi.muni.cz/pub/perl/ ftp://sunsite.mff.cuni.cz/Languages/Perl/CPAN/ Denmark ftp://sunsite.auc.dk/pub/languages/perl/CPAN/ Estonia ftp://ftp.ut.ee/pub/languages/perl/CPAN/ Finland ftp://ftp.funet.fi/pub/languages/perl/CPAN/ France ftp://ftp.lip6.fr/pub/perl/CPAN/ ftp://ftp.oleane.net/pub/mirrors/CPAN/ ftp://ftp.pasteur.fr/pub/computing/CPAN/ Germany ftp://ftp.archive.de.uu.net/pub/CPAN/ ftp://ftp.gmd.de/packages/CPAN/ ftp://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/languages/perl/CPAN/ ftp://ftp.leo.org/pub/comp/programming/languages/script/perl/CPAN/ ftp://ftp.mpi-sb.mpg.de/pub/perl/CPAN/ ftp://ftp.rz.ruhr-uni-bochum.de/pub/CPAN/ ftp://ftp.uni-erlangen.de/pub/source/CPAN/ ftp://ftp.uni-hamburg.de/pub/soft/lang/perl/CPAN/ Greece ftp://ftp.ntua.gr/pub/lang/perl/ Hungary ftp://ftp.kfki.hu/pub/packages/perl/CPAN/ Ireland ftp://sunsite.compapp.dcu.ie/pub/perl/ Italy ftp://cis.uniRoma2.it/CPAN/ ftp://ftp.flashnet.it/pub/CPAN/ Netherlands ftp://ftp.cs.ruu.nl/pub/PERL/CPAN/ ftp://ftp.EU.net/packages/cpan/ Norway ftp://ftp.uit.no/pub/languages/perl/cpan/ ftp://sunsite.uio.no/pub/languages/perl/CPAN/ Poland ftp://ftp.man.szczecin.pl/pub/perl/CPAN/ ftp://ftp.man.torun.pl/pub/CPAN/ ftp://ftp.pk.edu.pl/pub/lang/perl/CPAN/ ftp://sunsite.icm.edu.pl/pub/CPAN/ Portugal ftp://ftp.ci.uminho.pt/pub/lang/perl/ ftp://ftp.ua.pt/pub/CPAN/ Romania ftp://ftp.dntis.ro/pub/mirrors/perl-cpan/ ftp://ftp.dnttm.ro/pub/CPAN/ Russia ftp://cpan.npi.msu.su/CPAN/ ftp://ftp.sai.msu.su/pub/lang/perl/CPAN/ Slovakia ftp://ftp.entry.sk/pub/languages/perl/CPAN/ Slovenia ftp://ftp.arnes.si/software/perl/CPAN/ Spain ftp://ftp.etse.urv.es/pub/perl/ ftp://ftp.rediris.es/mirror/CPAN/ Sweden ftp://ftp.sunet.se/pub/lang/perl/CPAN/ Switzerland ftp://sunsite.cnlab-switch.ch/mirror/CPAN/ Turkeya ftp://sunsite.bilkent.edu.tr/pub/languages/CPAN/ United Kingdom ftp://ftp.demon.co.uk/pub/mirrors/perl/CPAN/ ftp://ftp.flirble.org/pub/languages/perl/CPAN/ ftp://ftp.plig.org/pub/CPAN/ ftp://sunsite.doc.ic.ac.uk/packages/CPAN/ ftp://unix.hensa.ac.uk/mirrors/perl-CPAN/ North America Canada ftp://ftp.crc.ca/pub/packages/perl/CPAN/ ftp://theory.uwinnipeg.ca/pub/CPAN/ United States ftp://cpan.if.usp.br/pub/mirror/CPAN/ ftp://ftp.ccs.neu.edu/net/mirrors/ftp.funet.fi/pub/languages/perl/CPAN/ ftp://ftp.cdrom.com/pub/perl/CPAN/ ftp://ftp.cise.ufl.edu/pub/perl/CPAN/ ftp://ftp.cs.colorado.edu/pub/perl/CPAN/ ftp://ftp.digital.com/pub/plan/perl/CPAN/ ftp://ftp.duke.edu/pub/perl/ ftp://ftp.epix.net/pub/languages/perl/ ftp://ftp.iguide.com/pub/mirrors/packages/perl/CPAN/ ftp://ftp.metronet.com/pub/perl/ ftp://ftp.orst.edu/pub/packages/CPAN/ ftp://ftp.ou.edu/mirrors/CPAN/ ftp://ftp.rge.com/pub/languages/perl/ ftp://ftp.sedl.org/pub/mirrors/CPAN/ ftp://ftp.spu.edu/pub/CPAN/ ftp://ftp.uwsg.indiana.edu/pub/perl/CPAN/ ftp://uiarchive.uiuc.edu/pub/lang/perl/CPAN/ South America Brazil ftp://ftp.ing.puc.cl/pub/unix/perl/CPAN/ Chile ftp://sunsite.dcc.uchile.cl/pub/Lang/perl/CPAN/ All the files under each of the directories listed above should be identical at all these sites since they are all automatically maintained mirrors of the master CPAN site. Please use which ever site is 'nearest' you. NOTE: If you can't find what you want, or wish to check that what you've found is the latest version, or wonder why a module mentioned in this list is not on CPAN, you should contact the person associated with the module (and not the maintainers of the archives or this list). Contact details are given at the start of Part 5. Playing Your Part Perl is a huge collaborative effort. Everyone who uses perl is benefiting from the contributions of many hundreds, maybe thousands, of people. How much time has perl saved you since you started using it? Do you have any modules you could share with others? For example, you may have some perl4 scripts from which generally useful, and reusable, modules could be extracted. There may be many people who would find your work very useful. Please play your part and contribute to the Perl community where you can. [ end of sermon :-] Help save the world! Please submit new entries and updates to us so we can keep this list up-to-date. Send the new or corrected entry by email to modules@perl.org (or modules@franz.ww.tu-berlin.de in case the above doesn't work). Please do not send code to this address. Instead upload your module, once registered, to the PAUSE site for forwarding on to CPAN. See section 2, especially 2.6 and 2.11.

A package is just a namespace. A class is a package that provides subroutines that can be used as methods. A method is just a subroutine that expects, as its first argument, either the name of a package (for "static" methods), or a reference to something (for "virtual" methods). A module is a file that (by convention) provides a class of the same name (sans the .pm), plus an import method in that class that can be called to fetch exported symbols. This module may implement some of its methods by loading dynamic C or C++ objects, but that should be totally transparent to the user of the module. Likewise, the module might set up an AUTOLOAD function to slurp in subroutine definitions on demand, but this is also transparent. Only the .pm file is required to exist. 2) Guidelines for Module Creation ------------------------------ 2.1 Do similar modules already exist in some form? If so, please try to reuse the existing modules either in whole or by inheriting useful features into a new class. If this is not practical try to get together with the module authors to work on extending or enhancing the functionality of the existing modules. A perfect example is the plethora of packages in perl4 for dealing with command line options. If you are writing a module to expand an already existing set of modules, please coordinate with the author of the package. It helps if you follow the same naming scheme and module interaction scheme as the original author. 2.2 Try to design the new module to be easy to extend and reuse. Use blessed references. Use the two argument form of bless to bless into the class name given as the first parameter of the constructor, e.g.: sub new { my $class = shift; return bless {}, $class; } or even this if you'd like it to be used as either a static or a virtual method. sub new { my $self = shift; my $class = ref($self) || $self; return bless {}, $class; } Pass arrays as references so more parameters can be added later (it's also faster). Convert functions into methods where appropriate. Split large methods into smaller more flexible ones. Inherit methods from other modules if appropriate. Avoid class name tests like: die "Invalid" unless ref $ref eq 'FOO'. Generally you can delete the "eq 'FOO'" part with no harm at all. Let the objects look after themselves! If it's vital then you can use the UNIVERSAL methods isa and can. Generally, avoid hardwired class names as far as possible. Avoid $r->Class::func() where using @ISA=qw(... Class ...) and $r->func() would work (see perlbot man page for more details). Use autosplit or the SelfLoader module so little used or newly added functions won't be a burden to programs which don't use them. Add test functions to the module after __END__ either using autosplit or by saying: eval join('',<main::DATA>) || die $@ unless caller(); Does your module pass the 'empty sub-class' test? If you say "@SUBCLASS::ISA = qw(YOURCLASS);" your applications should be able to use SUBCLASS in exactly the same way as YOURCLASS. For example, does your application still work if you change: $obj = new YOURCLASS; into: $obj = new SUBCLASS; ? Avoid keeping any state information in your packages. It makes it difficult for multiple other packages to use yours. Keep state information in objects. Always use -w. Try to "use strict;" (or "use strict qw(...);"). Remember that you can add "no strict qw(...);" to individual blocks of code which need less strictness. Always use -w. Always use -w! Follow the guidelines in the perlstyle(1) manual. 2.3 Some simple style guidelines The perlstyle manual supplied with perl has many helpful points. Coding style is a matter of personal taste. Many people evolve their style over several years as they learn what helps them write and maintain good code. Here's one set of assorted suggestions that seem to be widely used by experienced developers: Use underscores to separate words. It is generally easier to read $var_names_like_this than $VarNamesLikeThis, especially for non-native speakers of English. It's also a simple rule that works consistently with VAR_NAMES_LIKE_THIS. Package/Module names are an exception to this rule. Perl informally reserves lowercase module names for 'pragma' modules like integer and strict. Other modules normally begin with a capital letter and use mixed case with no underscores (need to be short and portable). You may find it helpful to use letter case to indicate the scope or nature of a variable. For example: $ALL_CAPS_HERE constants only (beware clashes with perl vars) $Some_Caps_Here package-wide global/static $no_caps_here function scope my() or local() variables Function and method names seem to work best as all lowercase. E.g., $obj->as_string(). You can use a leading underscore to indicate that a variable or function should not be used outside the package that defined it. For method calls use either $foo = new Foo $arg1, $arg2; # no parentheses $foo = Foo->new($arg1, $arg2); but avoid the ambiguous form $foo = new Foo($arg1, $arg2); # Foo() looks like function call It can be very helpful if the names of the classes that your module uses can be specified as parameters. Consider: $dog_class = $args{dog_class} || 'Dog'; $spot = $dog_class->new(...); This allows the user of your module to specify an alternative class (typically a subclass of the one you would normally have used). On how to report constructor failure, Larry said: I tend to see it as exceptional enough that I'll throw a real Perl exception (die) if I can't construct an object. This has a couple of advantages right off the bat. First, you don't have to check the return value of every constructor. Just say "$fido = new Doggie;" and presume it succeeded. This leads to clearer code in most cases. Second, if it does fail, you get a better diagnostic than just the undefinedness of the return value. In fact, the exception it throws may be quite rich in "stacked" error messages, if it's rethrowing an exception caught further in. And you can always catch the exception if it does happen using eval {}. If, on the other hand, you expect your constructor to fail a goodly part of the time, then you shouldn't use exceptions, but you should document the interface so that people will know to check the return value. You don't need to use defined(), since a constructor would only return a true reference or a false undef. So good Perl style for checking a return value would simply say $conn = new Connection $addr or die "Couldn't create Connection"; In general, make as many things meaningful in a Boolean context as you can. This leads to straightforward code. Never write anything like if (do_your_thing() == OK) in Perl. That's just asking for logic errors and domain errors. Just write if (do_your_thing()) Perl is designed to help you eschew obfuscation, if that's your thing. 2.4 Select what to export. Do NOT export method names! Do NOT export anything else by default without a good reason! Exports pollute the namespace of the module user. If you must export try to use @EXPORT_OK in preference to @EXPORT and avoid short or common names to reduce the risk of name clashes. Generally anything not exported is still accessible from outside the module using the ModuleName::item_name (or $blessed_ref->method) syntax. By convention you can use a leading underscore on names to informally indicate that they are 'internal' and not for public use. (It is actually possible to get private functions by saying: my $subref = sub { ... }; &$subref; But there's no way to call that directly as a method, since a method must have a name in the symbol table.) As a general rule, if the module is trying to be object oriented then export nothing. If it's just a collection of functions then @EXPORT_OK anything but use @EXPORT with caution. 2.5 Select a name for the module. This name should be as descriptive, accurate and complete as possible. Avoid any risk of ambiguity. Always try to use two or more whole words. Generally the name should reflect what is special about what the module does rather than how it does it. Having 57 modules all called Sort will not make life easy for anyone (though having 23 called Sort::Quick is only marginally better :-). Imagine someone trying to install your module alongside many others. If in any doubt ask for suggestions in comp.lang.perl.modules or modules@perl.org. Please use a nested module name to informally group or categorise a module, e.g., placing a sorting module into a Sort:: category. A module should have a very good reason not to have a nested name. Please avoid using more than one level of nesting for module names (packages or classes within modules can, of course, use any number). Module names should begin with a capital letter. Lowercase names are reserved for special modules such as pragmas (e.g., lib and strict). Note that module names are not related to class hierarchies. A module name Foo::Bar does not in any way imply that Foo::Bar inherits from Foo. Nested names are simply used to provide some useful categorisation for humans. The same is generally true for all package names. Since the CPAN is huge and growing daily, it's essential that module authors choose names which lend themselves to browsing. That means minimizing acronyms, cute names, and jargon. Also, don't make up a new top level category unless you have a good reason; please choose an already-existing category when possible. Send mail to modules@perl.org before you upload, so we can help you select a name. If you insist on a name that we consider inappropriate, we won't prevent you from uploading your module -- but it'll remain in your "author" directory and won't be directly visible from CPAN/modules/by-module. We appreciate the efforts of the contributors who have helped make the CPAN the world's largest reusable code repository. Please help us enhance it by working with us to choose the best name possible. If you are developing a suite of related modules/classes it's good practice to use nested classes with a common prefix as this will avoid namespace clashes. For example: Xyz::Control, Xyz::View, Xyz::Model etc. Use the modules in this list as a naming guide. If adding a new module to a set, follow the original author's standards for naming modules and the interface to methods in those modules. If developing modules for private internal or project specific use, that will never be released to the public, then you should ensure that their names will not clash with any future public module. You can do this either by using the reserved Local::* category or by using a category name that includes an underscore like Foo_Corp::*. To be portable each component of a module name should be limited to 11 characters. If it might be used on DOS then try to ensure each is unique in the first 8 characters. Nested modules make this easier. 2.6 Have you got it right? How do you know that you've made the right decisions? Have you picked an interface design that will cause problems later? Have you picked the most appropriate name? Do you have any questions? The best way to know for sure, and pick up many helpful suggestions, is to ask someone who knows. The comp.lang.perl.modules Usenet newsgroup is read by just about all the people who develop modules and it's generally the best place to ask first. If you need more help then try modules@perl.org. All you need to do is post a short summary of the module, its purpose and interfaces. A few lines on each of the main methods is probably enough. (If you post the whole module it might be ignored by busy people - generally the very people you want to read it!) Don't worry about posting if you can't say when the module will be ready - just say so in the message. It might be worth inviting others to help you, they may be able to complete it for you! 2.7 README and other Additional Files. It's well known that software developers usually fully document the software they write. If, however, the world is in urgent need of your software and there is not enough time to write the full documentation please at least provide a README file containing: - A description of the module/package/extension etc. - A copyright notice - see below. - Prerequisites - what else you may need to have. - How to build it - possible changes to Makefile.PL etc. - How to install it. - Recent changes in this release, especially incompatibilities - Changes / enhancements you plan to make in the future. If the README file seems to be getting too large you may wish to split out some of the sections into separate files: INSTALL, Copying, ToDo etc. 2.8 Adding a Copyright Notice. How you choose to licence your work is a personal decision. The general mechanism is to assert your Copyright and then make a declaration of how others may copy/use/modify your work. Perl, for example, is supplied with two types of licence: The GNU GPL and The Artistic License (see the files README, Copying and Artistic). Larry has good reasons for NOT just using the GNU GPL. My personal recommendation, out of respect for Larry, Perl and the perl community at large is to simply state something like: Copyright (c) 1997 Your Name. All rights reserved. This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify it under the same terms as Perl itself. This statement should at least appear in the README file. You may also wish to include it in a Copying file and your source files. Remember to include the other words in addition to the Copyright. 2.9 Give the module a version/issue/release number. To be fully compatible with the Exporter and MakeMaker modules you should store your module's version number in a non-my package variable called $VERSION. This should be a valid floating point number with at least two digits after the decimal (ie hundredths, e.g, $VERSION = "0.01"). See Exporter.pm for details. Don't use a "1.3.2" style version directly. If you use RCS or a similar system which supports multilevel versions/branches you can use this (but put it all on one line for MakeMaker VERSION_FROM): $VERSION = do { my @r=(q$Revision: 2.99 $=~/\d+/g); sprintf "%d."."%02d"x$#r,@r }; It may be handy to add a function or method to retrieve the number. Use the number in announcements and archive file names when releasing the module (ModuleName-1.02.tar.gz). See perldoc ExtUtils::MakeMaker.pm for details. 2.10 Listing Prerequisites in a Bundle module If your module needs some others that are available on CPAN, you might consider creating a 'bundle' module that lists all the prerequisites in a standardized way. Automatic installation software such as the CPAN.pm module can take advantage of such a listing and enable your users to install all prerequisites and your own module with one single command. See the CPAN.pm module for details. 2.11 How to release and distribute a module. By far the best way to release modules is to register yourself with the Perl Authors Upload Server (PAUSE). By registering with PAUSE you will be able to easily upload (or mirror) your modules to the PAUSE server from where they will be mirrored to CPAN sites across the planet. It's good idea to post an announcement of the availability of your module to the comp.lang.perl.announce Usenet newsgroup. This will at least ensure very wide once-off distribution. If not using PAUSE you should place the module into a major ftp archive and include details of it's location in your announcement. Some notes about ftp archives: Please use a long descriptive file name which includes the version number. Most incoming directories will not be readable/listable, i.e., you won't be able to see your file after uploading it. Remember to send your email notification message as soon as possible after uploading else your file may get deleted automatically. Allow time for the file to be processed and/or check the file has been processed before announcing its location. FTP Archives for Perl Modules: Follow the instructions and links on or upload to one of these sites: and notify upload@pause.kbx.de. By using the PAUSE WWW interface you can ask the Upload Server to mirror your modules from your ftp or WWW site into your own directory on CPAN. Please remember to send us an updated entry for the Module list! 2.12 Take care when changing a released module. Always strive to remain compatible with previous released versions (see 2.2 above) Otherwise try to add a mechanism to revert to the old behaviour if people rely on it. Document incompatible changes. 3) Guidelines for Converting Perl 4 Library Scripts into Modules ------------------------------------------------------------- 3.1 There is no requirement to convert anything. If it ain't broke, don't fix it! Perl 4 library scripts should continue to work with no problems. You may need to make some minor changes (like escaping non-array @'s in double quoted strings) but there is no need to convert a .pl file into a Module for just that. See perltrap.pod for details of all known perl4-to-perl5 issues. 3.2 Consider the implications. All the perl applications which make use of the script will need to be changed (slightly) if the script is converted into a module. Is it worth it unless you plan to make other changes at the same time? 3.3 Make the most of the opportunity. If you are going to convert the script to a module you can use the opportunity to redesign the interface. The 'Guidelines for Module Creation' above include many of the issues you should consider. 3.4 The pl2pm utility will get you started. This utility will read *.pl files (given as parameters) and write corresponding *.pm files. The pl2pm utilities does the following: - Adds the standard Module prologue lines - Converts package specifiers from ' to :: - Converts die(...) to croak(...) - Several other minor changes Being a mechanical process pl2pm is not bullet proof. The converted code will need careful checking, especially any package statements. Don't delete the original .pl file till the new .pm one works! 4) Guidelines for Reusing Application Code --------------------------------------- 4.1 Complete applications rarely belong in the Perl Module Library. 4.2 Many applications contain some perl code which could be reused. Help save the world! Share your code in a form that makes it easy to reuse. 4.3 Break-out the reusable code into one or more separate module files. 4.4 Take the opportunity to reconsider and redesign the interfaces. 4.5 In some cases the 'application' can then be reduced to a small fragment of code built on top of the reusable modules. In these cases the application could invoked as: perl -MModule::Name -e 'func(@ARGV)' ======================================================================= Part 2 - The Perl 5 Module List =============================== The remainder of this document is divided up into sections. Each section deals with a particular topic and lists all known modules related to that topic. Modules are only listed in one section so check all sections that might related to your particular needs. All the information corresponds to the latest updates we have received. We don't record the version number or release dates of the listed Modules. Nor do we record the locations of these Modules. Consult the contact, try the usual perl CPAN sites or ask in comp.lang.perl.modules. Please do *not* ask us directly, we simply don't have the time. Sorry. 1) Module Listing Format Each Module listing is very short. The main goal is to simply publish the existence of the modules, or ideas for modules, and enough contact information for you to find out more. Each listing includes some characters which convey (approximate) basic status information. For example: Name DSLI Description Info ------------- ---- -------------------------------------------- ----- Fcntl Sdcf Defines fcntl() constants (see File::Lock) JHI Where the 'DSLI' characters have the following meanings: D - Development Stage (Note: *NO IMPLIED TIMESCALES*): i - Idea, listed to gain consensus or as a placeholder c - under construction but pre-alpha (not yet released) a/b - Alpha/Beta testing R - Released M - Mature (no rigorous definition) S - Standard, supplied with Perl 5 S - Support Level: m - Mailing-list d - Developer u - Usenet newsgroup comp.lang.perl.modules n - None known, try comp.lang.perl.modules L - Language Used: p - Perl-only, no compiler needed, should be platform independent c - C and perl, a C compiler will be needed h - Hybrid, written in perl with optional C code, no compiler needed + - C++ and perl, a C++ compiler will be needed o - perl and another language other than C or C++ I - Interface Style f - plain Functions, no references used h - hybrid, object and function interfaces available r - some use of unblessed References or ties O - Object oriented using blessed references and/or inheritance Where letters are missing they can usually be inferred from the others. For example 'i' implies 'id', 'S' implies 'Su'. The Info column gives a contact reference 'tag'. Lookup this tag in the "Information / Contact Reference Details" section in Pert 3 of this document. If no contact is given always try asking in comp.lang.perl.modules. Most Modules are nested in categories such as IPC::Open2 and IPC::Open3. These are shown as 'IPC::' on one line then each module listed below with a '::' prefix. Ideas For Adoption Modules listed as in the 'i' Development Stage with no contact reference are ideas without an owner. Feel free to 'adopt' these but please let me know so that we can update the list and thus inform anyone else who might be interested. Adoption simply means that you either hope to implement the module one day or would like to cooperate with anyone else who might be interested in implementing it. Cooperation Similarly, if an idea that interests you has been adopted by someone please contact them so you can share ideas. Just because an idea has been adopted does NOT imply that it's going to be implemented. Just because a module is listed and being implemented does NOT mean it'll get finished. Waiting silently in the hope that the Module will appear one day is unlikely to be fruitful! Offer to help. Cooperate. Pool your efforts. Go on, try it! The same applies to modules in all states. Most modules are developed in limited spare time. If you're interested in a module don't just wait for it to happen, offer to help. Module developers should feel free to announce incomplete work early. If you're not going to be able to spend much time on something then say so. If you invite cooperation maybe someone will implement it for you! _______________________________________________________________________ 2) Perl Core Modules, Perl Language Extensions and Documentation Tools Name DSLI Description Info ----------- ---- -------------------------------------------- ----- CORE Sucf Internal package for perl native functions P5P UNIVERSAL SucO Internal universal base-class JACKS SUPER SucO Internal class to access superclass methods P5P DynaLoader SucO Dynamic loader for shared libraries P5P AutoLoader SupO Automatic function loader (using AutoSplit) P5P SelfLoader SdpO Automatic function loader (using __DATA__) JACKS Exporter SupO Implements default import method for modules P5P Carp Supf Throw exceptions outside current package P5P Config Supf Stores details of perl build configuration P5P English Supf Defines English names for special variables P5P Symbol SupO Create 'anonymous' symbol (typeglobs) refs CHIPS Opcode Supf Disable named opcodes when compiling code TIMB Taint bdpf Utilities related to tainting PHOENIX Perl Pragmatic Modules builtin adcf A selection of subs destined for the core GBARR constant Supf Define compile-time constants P5P ! diagnostics Sdpf For reporting perl diagnostics in full form TOMC enum cdpf resemble enumerated types in C ZENIN integer Supf Controls float vs. integer arithmetic P5P less Supf Controls optimisations (yet unimplemented) P5P lib Supf Simple way to add/delete directories in @INC P5P overload SdpO Overload perl operators for new data types ILYAZ sigtrap Supf For trapping an abort and giving a traceback P5P strict Supf Controls averments (similar to pragmas) P5P subs Supf use subs qw(x y); is short for sub x; sub y; P5P vars Supf predeclare variable names P5P Perl Language Extensions Alias bdcf Convenient access to data/code via aliases GSAR Error adpO Error/exception handling in an OO-ish way GBARR Perl adcO Create Perl interpreters from within Perl GSAR + Plthread i Multithreading at Perl level (not O/S level) MICB Protect bdpf declare subs private or member JDUNCAN Safe SdcO Restrict eval'd code to safe subset of ops MICB The Perl Compiler B aucO The Perl Compiler MICB O aucO Perl Compiler frontends MICB B:: ::Graph bdpr Perl Compiler backend to diagram OP trees SMCCAM !

I don't want to define Big (or even Project) here. Hopefully the items below speak for themselves. Almost all are just ideas, though some have been dabbled with and some are active projects. These are ideas for people with very strong skills and lots of time. Please talk, and listen, to Larry and the perl5-porters _before_ starting to do any work on projects which relate to the core implementation of Perl. Ask not when these will be implemented, ask instead how you can help implement them. 1) Items in the Todo File The Todo supplied with Perl lists over 50 items in categories ranging from "Would be nice to have" to "Vague possibilities". Contacts: P5P 2) Multi-threading This is really two projects. True threads (e.g., POSIX) using multiple independant perl interpreter structures and simple timeslicing of 'tasks' within a single perl interpreter. True threads requires operating system support or an external thread library, simple timeslicing does not (and should be portable to all platforms). Malcolm Beattie <mbeattie@sable.ox.ac.uk> has done extensive work in this area and is folding this work into Perl now for version 5.005 or 5.006. Contacts: MICB P5P 3) Object Management Group CORBA & IDL Contacts: COPEML BARTS 4) Expand Tied Array Interface LEN, PUSH, POP, SHIFT, UNSHIFT and a fallback to SPLICE are needed. Complicated by very widespread use of arrays within perl internals. Contacts: P5P CHIPS 5) Extend Yacc To Write XS Code Contacts: JAKE NI-S P5P 6) Approximate Matching Regular Expressions Add support for approximate matching m/.../a (like the agrep utility). Contacts: JHI ======================================================================= Part 4 - Standards Cross-reference ================================== This section aims to provide a cross reference between standards that exist in the computing world and perl modules which have been written to implement or interface to those standards. It also aims to encourage module authors to consider any standards that might relate to the modules they are developing. 1) IETF - Internet Engineering Task Force (RFCs) Standard Description Module Name -------- ----------- ----------- RFC821 Simple Mail Transfer Protocol Net::SMTP RFC822 Internet Mail Header Mail::Header RFC822 Internet Mail addresses Mail::Address RFC867 Daytime Protocol Net::Time RFC868 Time Protocol Net::Time RFC959 File Transfer Protocol Net::FTP RFC977 A minimal NNTP Server NNML::Server RFC977 Network News Transfer Protocol Net::NNTP RFC1035, RFC1183, RFC1706 Domain names, implementation & specification Net::DNS RFC1123 Date conversion routines HTTP::Date RFC1321 MD5 Message-Digest Algorithm MD5 RFC1413 Identification Protocol Net::Ident RFC1521 Encode/decode quoted-printable strings MIME::QuotedPrint RFC1592 Simple Network Management Protocol Net::SNMP RFC1738 Uniform Resource Locators URI::URL RFC1777 Lightweight Directory Access Protocol Net::LDAP RFC1861 Simple Network Pager Protocol Net::SNPP RFC1866 Encode/decode HTML entities in a string HTML::Entities RFC1939 Post Office Protocol 3 Net::POP3 RFC1950-1952 ZLIB, DEFLATE, GZIP Compress::Zlib RFC1960 String Representation of LDAP Search Filters Net::LDAP::Filter RFC2045-2049 MIME - Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions MIME::* RFC2138 Terminal server authentification and accting RADIUS RFC2229 Dictionary Server Net::Dict _______________________________________________________________________ 2) ITU - International Telegraph Union (X.*) Standard Description Module Name -------- ----------- ----------- X.209 Basic Encoding Rules for ASN.1 Convert::BER _______________________________________________________________________ 3) ISO - International Standards Organization (ISO*) Standard Description Module Name -------- ----------- ----------- ISO/R 2015-1971 Date calculations for the Gregorian calendar Date::DateCalc ISO639 Two letter codes for language identification Locale::Language ISO3166 Two letter codes for country identification Locale::Country ======================================================================= Part 5 - Who's Who ================== 1) Information / Contact Reference Details (in alphabetical order) Ref Contact Details ----- -------------------------------------------------------------- ABARCLAY Alan Barclay <gorilla@elaine.drink.com> ABH Ask Bjřrn Hansen <ask@netcetera.dk> ABIGAIL Abigail <abigail@fnx.com> ABURLISON Alan Burlison <Alan.Burlison@UK.Sun.COM> ABW Andy Wardley <abw@cre.canon.co.uk> ACALPINI Aldo Calpini <dada@divinf.it> ACH Achim Bohnet <ach@mpe.mpg.de> ADESC Alligator Descartes <descarte@arcana.co.uk> AEPAGE Andrew E Page <aep@world.std.com> AGENTML Mailing List For Perl5 Agents Send email to perl5-agentr@epitome.hawk.igs.net with the body "subscribe <emailaddr>" AGIERTH Andrew P.
