in reply to (OT) Does anyone know of a common object repository?

I'd suggest OpenCyc, but seems to be down right now. :-(

There is UMBEL too, which gives you classes with subclass/superclass relationships, but not a list of properties you might associate with a lamp. e.g.

The ontology (here in RDF) is quite well-curated, but not extensive enough to have a specific class for lamps - the closest appears to be its "Product" class.

perl -E'sub Monkey::do{say$_,for@_,do{($monkey=[caller(0)]->[3])=~s{::}{ }and$monkey}}"Monkey say"->Monkey::do'

    Thanks for all the feedback!

    Looks like their are several promising projects doing this sort of thing (at some level).
    A WordNet type of approach looks interesting (and complex). UMBEL might be on the right track.

[Corion]: marioroy: Oh, that's always cool, having API-compatible modules. This makes testing and comparing things much easier
[marioroy]: IPC in MCE::Shared can handle 400k (sends) per second. That's seems a lot for being a pure-Perl module. After making the release, will come back and post a solution for a node by a fellow wanting faster logging.
[Corion]: While working on WWW::Mechanize:: Chrome, I had the suspicion that AnyEvent was doing something wrong, but I was able to swap it out for Mojolicious and the error persisted.
[Corion]: Of course, the error was in my own code ;)
[marioroy]: Corion, start and start_child in MCE::Hobo::Manager return a MCE::Hobo object, whereas P::FM returns the PID. I can have it return the PID though. I tried Hobo::Manager with several P::FM modules, just changed P::FM to MCE::Hobo::Manager and it works.
