Perllib is a bunch of CPAN-style modules that make up a lot of the W3C infrustrcuture and a few RDF tools.
The perllib was born of a need to implement an RDF infrastructure at W3C. This is currently used for access control and annotations, but will be used for a more diverse group of applications as our needs evolve. A little polishing of these libraries and tools provided w forms, CPAN-style
There hasn't been a new set of CPAN packages for ages. The CVS codebase is under constant development. Recent milestones include an algae interface with forward chaining and a multi-grammar RDF parser.
Please send all requests regarding perllib to <firstname.lastname@example.org> public mailing list. This list is archived at W3C. Note, you MUST be subscribed in order to post to the mailing list.

Here is a list of the stuff I'm currently working on:
B::CCmodule which is usefull for precompiling your perl code and storing it in data structures in a
Cprogram. You then compile this code and have an executable that is usefull for quickstarting your perl program.
The development of perllib depends on YOU! The more people who are contributing and helping the development, the more useful the code base gets.
Writing directly to the CVS repository is reserved for perllib hackers who have intimate knowledge of the code base and have proven their ability to use this privilege to the benefit of the perllib user community. You are of course more than welcome (read strongly encouraged) to submit patches to the <email@example.com> mailing list regardless of whether you have write access or not. If the patch is good, chances are good that it will be added to the CVS codebase by one of the perllib hackers.
