Most of them don't need any maintainance, but a few, like <a href="http://search.cpan.org/dist/DBD-Google/">DBD::Google</a>, <a href="http://search.cpan.org/dist/Tie-Google/">Tie::Google</a>, <a href="http://search.cpan.org/dist/Net-Nslookup/">Net::Nslookup</a>, and <a href="http://search.cpan.org/dist/Text-TabularDisplay/">Text::TabularDisplay</a>, need some love and attention that I just cannot provide.</p><p>If anyone is interested in taking any of them over, please leave a comment or email me. The full list of my modules is available in the usual places, like <a href="http://search.cpan.org/~darren/">here</a>. No reasonable offer will be refused!</p> dlc 2006-01-06T18:28:34+00:00 journal Template::Plugin::GnuPG -- PGP encrypt your TT output http://use.perl.org/~dlc/journal/21299?from=rss <p>I recently released <a href="http://search.cpan.org/dist/Template-Plugin-GnuPG">Template::Plugin::GnuPG</a>, which integrates the <a href="http://www.template-toolkit.org/">Template Toolkit</a> and <a href="http://www.gnupg.org/">gnupg</a> via the <a href="http://search.cpan.org/dist/">GnuPG</a> module. I wrote it (over the course of an hour or so) because I had an odd need: I needed to encrypt the body of a web page to a specific GPG key. The encrypted page is simply a PGP message (with the <tt>-----BEGIN PGP MESSAGE-----</tt>) wrapped in headers and footers.</p><p>Because no browser supports PGP-encrypted content (though they should!), there are a couple of ways to view the content. The first is to use something that can decrypt the contents of a window, such as <a href="http://www.winpt.org/">WinPT</a> (if you're using windows). Since WinPT doesn't run on my OS of choice, I would most likely do something like:</p><blockquote><div><p> <tt>$ wget -qO- http://example.com/encrypted.html | gpg --output - | lynx -force_html -stdin</tt></p></div> </blockquote><p>(Though that would run any formatting within the encrypted part of the document.)</p><p>Anyway, it will be interesting to see if anyone else has a use for this plugin. I can see it being useful for automatically generated email, in addition to web pages, but I don't know how often people have a need to do this kind of thing.</p> dlc 2004-10-12T01:19:14+00:00 journal Net::Nslookup 1.16 http://use.perl.org/~dlc/journal/20430?from=rss <p>I've uploaded a <a href="http://search.cpan.org/dist/Net-Nslookup/">new version</a> of <code>Net::Nslookup</code> with support for <code>TXT</code> records, thanks to a patch from David Lary. For some reason, this is a pretty popular module, more popular than I'd expected, at least. I think it's because of the familiarity of the name; people coming from a Unix background looking for simple DNS functionality naturally search for <code>nslookup</code>, I guess.</p> dlc 2004-08-16T14:09:21+00:00 journal
