A Perl script catalogs books and CDs with the help of barcodes
All of the modules used here are available from CPAN and can be installed with a CPAN shell. The article database created by the script can be used in various ways: as a buying aid ("Do I own this book already?"), as a CD archive, or – if you include location details (as in, "Room 1, Shelf 4, Compartment 3") – as an online catalog for absent-minded librarians.
