DESCRIPTION ^

This bundle installs the prerequisites for Interchange 5 as well as some modules that are not strictly necessary.

(Interchange was formerly known as Minivend.)

After installing this bundle, it is recommended that you quit the current session and then run Interchange's makecat program. That will give you the benefit of line completion and history.

The core functions of Interchange will run with a stock Perl, but to use some features of Interchange (like the administrative interface) you will need these modules.

Digest::MD5

This module is used to generate unique cache keys. If you don't have it, then keys will be computed with a checksum that has a very low but not infinitesimal chance of causing a cache conflict.

Storable

If you have this module session save speed increases by anywhere from 25-60%. Highly recommended for busy systems.

Safe::Hole

This helps Interchange deal with the object-creation restrictions of Safe.pm, used to encourage security.

DBI

Most people want to use SQL with Interchange, and this is a requirement. You will also need the appropriate DBD module, i.e. DBD::mysql to support MySQL.

Term::ReadKey

Helps Term::ReadLine::Perl generate completions and editing for makecat and other interactive scripts from command line.

Term::ReadLine::Perl

Gives you filename completion and command history in the makecat program. Not used otherwise.

MIME::Base64

Provides HTTP services for internal HTTP server and basic authentication.

URI::URL

Provides HTTP primitives for internal HTTP server.

HTML::Tagset

Required by Bundle::LWP.

Bundle::LWP

Certain parts of these modules (URI::URL and MIME::Base64) are required for Interchange's internal HTTP server. Also, Business::UPS, for calculating shipping, requires this.

Business::UPS

Enables lookup of shipping costs directly from www.ups.com. Requires Bundle::LWP.

IO::Scalar

Used for Spreadsheet::*Excel.

Parse::RecDescent

Used for Spreadsheet::*Excel.

OLE::Storage_Lite

Used for Spreadsheet::*Excel.

Image::Size

Optional but recommended for [image ...] tag.

Tie::ShadowHash

Needed for pre-fork mode of Interchange, prevents permanent write of configuration.

Spreadsheet::ParseExcel

Allows upload of XLS spreadsheets for database import in the UI.

Spreadsheet::WriteExcel

Allows output of XLS spreadsheets for database export in the UI.

Archive::Tar

Only needed for supplementary UserTag definitions.

Archive::Zip

Only needed for supplementary UserTag definitions.

Compress::Zlib

Only needed for supplementary UserTag definitions.

Crypt::SSLeay

Payment interface links via HTTPS/SSL.

SOAP::Lite

Only needed when employing SOAP.

Tie::Watch

Allows tied configuration values that execute subroutines on access or set.

Time::HiRes

Needed for some Intranet functions.
