ParaTools v1.10 available for download

The latest update to ParaTools, version 1.10, has been released. This version has some major changes:

  • Module renaming: The ParaTools modules have been renamed to Biblio::Citation::Parser and Biblio::Document::Parser. This is to allow for the addition of ParaTools to CPAN, the Comprehensive Perl Archive Network.
  • Two new modules have been added - Biblio::Citation::Parser::Citebase and Biblio::Document::Parser::Brody. Both written by Tim Brody, the former is based on the Citebase citation parser, and the latter on its document parser.
  • The ParaTools build process now uses Module::Build, a replacement for ExtUtils::MakeMaker that is written in pure Perl. This is a fairly new system, so may require that you install the Module::Build module. The automated CPAN installer does not yet support this, although CPANPLUS does, and the next version will include a fallback option.

You can download the ParaTools modules from CPAN:
