    Genealogy seems one of the few areas in which Perl hasn't made much of an impact. I only know of the Gedcom module. I've used this in conjunction with Tk to make a Gedcom "viewer" - pretty crappy early code of mine and could do with a more structured rewrite. You can have a copy if interested.


    My other use of Perl in genealogy is to take a descendency narrative in ASCII (produced by TMG), reformat and add LaTeX formatting commands. I can then turn this into PS/PDF for printing, or run it through LaTeX2html. This is horrible code - now that I understand ParseRecDescent a bit and with help from Data Munging - this is also long overdue a rewrite.


    If interested you can see the results at Some Wiggin Trees [cwc.net]
