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

Hi I'm looking to create an online reservation system for a B&B. Does anyone know of any open source versions of such that I could try and adapt? This would be a first project for me, hence am not looking to re-invent the wheel. Colin

    Do a google search for "perl reservation". Alot depends on what database you are going to use, and whether you are hosting it yourself, or having a third party host it.

    Since you don't want to "re-invent the wheel," may I suggest a search of FreshMeat.net or SourceForge, both of which turned up entries that look to be adaptable to your expressed needs. (The latter, in fact, gave at least one entry in the first 10 specifically mentioning its application toward small B&Bs.)

    Hope that helps.

      Thanks for that - as a novice I wasn't aware that was the place to go, but lots of interesting links to explore. (And some more manuals to read to understand them!)

    Or if you want to write it yourself in Perl, it is perhaps a good opportunity to look into Catalyst.
