in thread Creating Metadata from Text File
No, unfortunately there is not much perl driven development in the Metadata/Semantics space that I am aware of. Most of it seems to be Java right now.
And please, don't take my reference to "brute force" in the wrong way; its admirable that you are attemting this at all, and I will be eager to see any results you achieve: but I wanted you to know that others had attempted this before and came up with a very useful method.
I am primarily a data warehouse developer, but I have been interested in metadata collection and utilisation for about 5 years now. Tim Berners-Lee is pushing for standards in this area; and RDFS (RDF-Schemae) is a big step toward his "Semantic Web" goal.
