One cool idea that is floating in the back and front of my mind from time to time would be the combination of Strawberry Perl together with PAR, DBD::SQLite and The GUI Loft into a Visual Basic/Access/Filemaker clone.

I have only taken a cursory look at The GUI Loft, and so far I mostly see the need to excise XML::Simple resp. XML::Parser from the prerequisites, as Strawberry Perl "only" comes with XML::LibXML and not XML::Parser. Starting from there, it should be possible to get The GUI Loft to run on a current Strawberry Perl. Then, some wizards to package up everything under a directory into a PAR executable or to even collect the code together with the data in the SQLite database should be fairly easy and it would make Perl a convenient tool to create deployable applications to users when no web server is available.
