You can read Dave Roth's articles published in the
Windows IT Pro magazine (formally known as Windows .NET Magazine) that
use Perl to accomplish interesting tasks.

From an administrators point of view Win32 security is terrific but from
a coders perspective it can be a nightmare. Managing Security Descriptors,
System Access Control Lists (SACL), Discresionary Access Control Lists (DACL)
and Access Control Entries (ACE) can be more than just tedious. Especially
since Microsoft's Local Security Authority (LSA) functions are so poorly
Our Win32 Security C++ library takes all of the headache out of the security
coding mess. All one needs to do is instantiate one of our Security
objects and you have a Security Descriptor. You can then add as many

With our Accounts C++ library querying and modifying a Win32 account is an
absolute piece of cake. Let's say that you need to change a users logon
script or discover how many current network connections a server is
managing. It is as simple as creating a new Accounts object.
A light version of this library (it only provides access to user accounts)
is used in Perl's Win32::AdminMisc extension.
We have ported GNU's GDBM database library to the Win32 platform.
This is the basis for our port of the GDBM_File Perl extension.
In keeping with the spirit of GNU and the open source initiative we
provide the source code and binaries.
Let's say that you have a library that you need to access from
a Perl script. This could be for a proprietary database engine, a
real time data acquisition hardware device or even a pager messaging
system. The ability to access such things from Perl can prove to be
not only efficient but cost effective. It makes prototyping code to
access such devices fast and lightweight. This is how may
organizations provide those camera views on the web.
We have extensive experience in writing Perl extensions; those
pieces of software that extend the Perl language. Our
Perl Page describes some of the extensions that
we have authored. We can also author an extension for you.
