  • ... the Windows machine in our house has a Perl script set up as a daily scheduled task which uses WWW::Mechanize to log into our library web site and check for loans falling due soon.

    The same machine has a relatively complex web app on it (for local use) that uses Apache+mod_perl+TT2+SQLite. I'd tell you what it does but it would bring back unhappy memories and I might have to kill someone.

    I have used ActiveState's PerlEx under IIS for building web apps on Windows but Apache/mod_perl is much easier for that sort of thing.

    I've also done a little bit of work with Win32::OLE to script MSOffice and hook up Excel to unusual data sources.
