Code Generation in Perl
Have you looked at Alzabo at all?
AppML is a code generator; you describe what you want, and AppML will generate thousands of lines of Perl, SQL, and templates, to meet your project description.
You can tweak the generated code, or, preferably, you can tweak the generator -- so the improvements will be applied to the next projects as well.
Futhermore, AppML can generate code in other languages, and can use other open source platforms and frameworks like Alzabo or Maypole.
