I am an  UNIX System Administrator for the Max-Planck-Institute for Astrophysics in Garching, Germany. Working with great tools like Perl on nice systems like Linux.

I've found Perl to be a useful tool, both for prototyping as well as building production-quality applications. In the spirit of the community of Perl developers and contributors, I am working on the following projects and modules.

The AFS Perl API is a dynamically loadable (where available) extension to Perl. It gives the AFS user and administrator access to many of the AFS programming APIs, allowing you to make these calls directly from Perl, rather than processing the output of a command. This bundle compiles with IBM/Transarc AFS and OpenAFS.

I have set up an AFS Perl API Kwiki. where you will find all information about it. v1.8 available from my CPAN directory is a Perl script to freeze a configuration of sources checked in under RCS. It is a complete rewrite of the shell script contained in the RCS version control package.

MPA Account Administration (Mp3a)
Mp3a is a Perl tool with a graphical front end to administer user accounts at the Max-Planck-Institute for Astrophysics (MPA).
