Async-Interrupt Allow C/XS libraries to interrupt perl asynchronously.
Audio-Play-MPG123 A Perl module implementing an interface to mpg123.
basex Very old, very portable ANSI-C program that implements something that is similar to yencode. yencode is more "standard", so don't use this.
BDB A Perl module implementing an interface to BerkeleyDB versions 4.4 and later. Unlike the BerkeleyDB and DB_File modules, this module has a much more C-like interface exposing all the features of the underlying library and also executes all database changes asynchronously using a thread pool.
Canary-Stability A little bird that doubles as an early warning system.
CBOR-XS CBOR::XS implements the Concise Binary Object Representation (RFC 7049), which is a kind of "binary JSON" that also has the ability to cleanly serialise objects. Unlike other binary formats, CBOR is actually capable of representing all JSON texts, not just a subset of them.
cfmaps This is a collection of scripts that I use to create the Deliantra maps at
common-sense This module implements some sane defaults for Perl programs, as defined by two typical (or not so typical - use your common sense) specimens of Perl coders.
Compress-LZF A Perl module implementing the LZF compression algorithm, and simple to use data structure serialising.
Compress-LZV1 A Perl module implementing the LZV1 compression algorithm. See Compress::LZF for a better algorithm and module.

Convert-Scalar Perl module to convert between different representations of Perl scalars.
Convert-UUlib Perl interface to the uulib library (a.k.a. uudeview/uuenview), which allows easy decoding of multipart mime, uuencode and a whole lot of differently encoded messages. You basically throw files at it, and it extracts the files in them. This module is used by the popular amavis virus scanner.
Coro A large Perl module family that implements cooperative multitasking in Perl. It supports filehandle and event abstraction and also implements continuations as well as the necessary directives to implement a slightly limited call/cc in Perl.
Coro-MP This Perl module extends the AnyEvent::MP API with a thread-like/erlang-style API.
Coro-Mysql Lets other threads run while doing mysql requests via DBD::mysql.

Crypt-Spritz A Perl module implementing the Spritz family of cryptographic algorithms, giving you a stream cipher, a hash, a mac, authenticated encryption with associated data (AEAD) and a cryptographically secure random number generator, at reasonable speed and with very small code size, making Spritz an attractive algorithm for resource-constrained environments such as javascript in your browser, or microcontrollers.
Crypt-Twofish2 A Perl module implementing the twofish encryption algorithm in Perl. It has mostly been superceded by the Crypt::Twofish module. However, it supports an easy and fast CBC mode natively.
CV Gtk2::CV is a perl module that implements an image viewer.

deliantra/arch The Deliantra game resources.
deliantra/Deliantra Perl module family for the Deliantra game.

deliantra/gde The Deliantra editor, written in Perl + Gtk2.
deliantra/maps The Deliantra game maps.
deliantra/server The Deliantra game server.

ermyth This is a fork of Atheme IRC Services.
EV A thin wrapper around libev, a high-performance event loop. Intended as a faster and less buggy replacement for the Event perl module. Efficiently supports very high number of timers, scalable operating system APIs such as epoll, kqueue, solaris's ports, inotify, eventfd, signalfd, child/pid watchers and much more.
EV-ADNS An asynchronous stub resolver that integrates efficiently into the EV event loop. Uses adns/libadns as backend.
EV-Glib This perl module embeds the default Glib mainloop into the EV event loop. This makes it possible to use callbacks or modules using the Glib module (e.g. Gtk2 programs) within EV programs. Just loading it suffices. See the Glib::EV module for the reverse approach.
EV-Loop-Async Small module that runs an EV event loop in another thread and uses an Async-Interrupt object to signal new events to perl.
Faster A perl module that makes perl run, well, faster, using a very primitive just in time compiler.
fcrackzip fcrackzip is a zip password cracker, similar to fzc, zipcrack and others.
File-Rdiff A Perl module that generates remote signatures and patches files using librsync: basically your interface to librsync.
Games-Go-SimpleBoard A Perl module representing a go board.
Games-Sokoban A perl module to load/transform/save sokoban levels in various formats.
Glib-EV This perl module patches the default libglib main loop context to use the EV module. This makes it possible to use callbacks or modules using the EV module within Glib and Gtk2 programs. Just loading it suffices. See the EV::Glib module for the reverse approach.
Glib-Event This perl module patches the default libglib main loop context to use the Event module. This makes it possible to use callbacks or modules using the Event module within Glib and Gtk2 programs. Just loading it suffices.
GPS Undocumented, unreleased and unfinished-but-working interface to some GPS devices in Perl.
Gtk2-GoBoard A Perl module implementing a go board widget.
gtkbfc Gtk+ bash file chooser replacement.
Guard This small module implements scope and object guards, that is, code blocks that are executed when a scope is being exited (or an object is destroyed).
gvpe GVPE creates a virtual ethernet network with multiple nodes using a variety of transport protocols. Participating nodes do not need to trust each other.
IO-AIO A Perl module that implements asynchronous I/O using pthreads. Apart from AIO reading and writing, this module also allows asynchronous stat, open, unlink (and more) calls, which often are a substantial blocking problem. See also its (outdated) brother Linux-AIO.
IO-FDPass Pass a file descriptor over a socket.
JSON-XS JSON::XS implements JSON ( for Perl. Unlike other modules, its primary goal is to encode to syntactically correct JSON and flag invalid JSON while decoding. It ensures round-trip integrity of datatypes while being intuitive to use. Currently being the fastest of the JSON encoders available for Perl, it supports a variety of format options, such as single-line, ASCII-only or pretty-printed and can be tuned for speed or memory usage. It comes with a wealth of documentation describing usage and implementation details.
kgsueme This perl module is about reverse engineering the protocol (xml source) of the popular Kiseido Go Server.
libcoro This C-library implements coroutines (cooperative multitasking) in a portable fashion.
libecb The e compiler builtins header/library.
libeio Event-based fully asynchronous I/O library for C (used by IO::AIO). Currently in BETA!
libev A full-featured and high-performance (see benchmark) event loop that is loosely modelled after libevent, but without its limitations and bugs. It is used in GNU Virtual Private Ethernet, rxvt-unicode, auditd, the Deliantra MORPG Server and Client, and many other programs.
liblzf LibLZF is a very small data compression library.
libptytty libptytty is an offspring of rxvt-unicode that handles pty/tty/utmp/wtmp/lastlog handling in mostly OS-independent ways, so it's less of a hassle for you :)
libspf Libspf is a C library that implements the Sender Policy Framework. It allows software to identify and reject forged envelope-from addresses, a typical nuisance in e-mail spam. SPF is defined in Experimental RFC 4408.
Linux-AIO A Perl module that implements asynchronous I/O using clone on Linux. Apart from AIO reading and writing, this module also allows asynchronous stat, open and close (and more) calls, which often are a substantial problem. See also its (newer) brother IO-AIO.
Linux-Clone A Perl interface to the clone(2) and unshare(2) syscalls.
Linux-DVB A perl module that implements a very direct interface to the Linux DVB API. Also contains utility functions to decode SI data.
Linux-Inotify2 A better/less buggy/more portable interface to the Linux Inotify subsystem then what Linux::Inotify has to offer. Inotify lets you receive file change, create, move etc. events for directories in files in a more scalable fashion than dnotify, the older mechanism.
Linux-NBD A Perl module that helps implementing netblock block device servers and set up NBD instances. A sample application allowing you to mount most CD images is included.
lmainit A sysvinit replacement that can even be configured to be sysvinit-compliant.
