Unfortunately the link is dead.
CatInABox is a complete version of Catalyst that is installed locally on your system, so that you don't need to go through the effort of doing a full install. Simply download the tarball from http://handelframework.com/downloads/CatInABox.tar.gz and unpack it on your machine. Depending on your OS platform, either run start.bat or start.sh to set your bin/PERLLIB paths. This tarball contains everything needed to try out Catalyst including Catalyst itself, Template Toolkit, several Authentication modules, StackTrace, and a few other plugins.
There is another link found here but downloads directory points to an svndump which I could not open or use.
A program should be light and agile, its subroutines connected like a string of pearls. The spirit and intent of the program should be retained throughout. There should be neither too little or too much, neither needless loops nor useless variables, neither lack of structure nor overwhelming rigidity." - The Tao of Programming, 4.1 - Geoffrey James
