Large perl app source code to learn from

mandog has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I am a little bit comfortable with perl at the snippit/system admin hack level. I'd like to start writing some larger mod_perl/DBI applications.

Can you think of some well written medium to large scale applications (greater than 5 screens) with available source code for me to download and learn from? Bricolage seems like one possibility

      Thanks for the lists. Perhaps I am greedy, but some ideas as to which of these largish apps are best written/best suited for for learning would be helpful.

      For example I vaugely recall some people describing the slash code as a bit disorganized.

        I don't think so. It's all moot anyway, just go to http://perl.apache.org/products/products.html and you'll get all the mod_perl related projects you want.

        As for openxp, that's a cut'n'paste error. It should've been http://openthought.sf.net

        I run a Win32 PPM repository for perl 5.6x+5.8x. I take requests.

    I would suggest you look at OpenInteract and Template Toolkit. Both are complex projects with high-quality source code, and are good examples of OO development in Perl.

    There are many. Bugzilla comes to mind, but that may be a larger-scale app than you were looking for, at least right away. As someone else said, you may (depending on how comfortable you already are) want to start by writing something small (say, a CGI script that maintains a single table with predetermined fields and allows the user to add and edit records) and work up from there.


    {my$c;$ x=sub{++$c}}map{$ \.=$_->()}map{my$a=$_->[1]; sub{$a++ }}sort{_($a->[0 ])<=>_( $b->[0])}map{my@x=(& $x( ),$ _) ;\ @x} split //, "rPcr t lhuJnhea eretk.as o";print;sub _{ord(shift)*($=-++$^H)%(42-ord("\r"))};

    I would highly recommend Interchange 1 (http://www.icdevgroup.org). It's an e-commerce platform and it really pushes Perl to the limits: * The best open source e-commerce app there is. * Apache-style Preforking Daemon * Has it's own language parser (ITL) * Embedded perl anywhere (using Safe) I don't think there is a feature of Perl that it *doesn't* use. -Dan 1 (As a core developer of Interchange, I'm slightly biased).

    I found MoveableType to be very well written, and well worth the time to study, particularly if you want to learn more about what it takes to ship an application.
