...and it lacks the wealth of modules that CPAN offers.

Please note that XML::LibXSLT, the XSLT companion to XML::LibXML offers the "register_function" functionality which allows Perl functions to be called from stylesheets. An example (directly from the XML::LibXSLT documentation):

XML::LibXSLT->register_function("urn:foo", "bar", sub { scalar localt +ime });
and then later in a XSLT stylesheet:
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="" xmlns:foo="urn:foo"> <xsl:template match="/"> The time is: <xsl:value-of select="foo:bar()"/> </xsl:template> </xsl:stylesheet>

This implies that CPAN modules can be made available at least in stylesheets using XML::LibXSLT.

I've used this approach for a client, who is now running about 40 syndicated websites out of a single database in production using this approach. Even the associated CMS is using XML::LibXSLT with special custom functions for handling forms and updating the underlying database.

Typical modules that I've made available that way (directly or indirectly) are DBI, LWP::UserAgent, POSIX, Digest::MD5, Email::Valid, Time::ParseDate, etc. etc. etc.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
