Net-Server (0.99) ***

A good package that makes it very easy to setup standard server configurations.

The only big drawback is that Net::Server takes control of child processes. If you write appplications that need to fork() themselves and that depend on wait()ing for child processes, then things get really hard.

Convert-Binary-C (0.74) *****

Clearly one of the most amazing packages I've seen so far.

When you need to encode/decode structures (read: "messages") which are defined on C level, then this is *the* package to go. It's fast, easy to use, has excellent documentation - and on top, Marcus was always quick to provide very helpful insight with some open questions.

In my case, writing a message tracer/sender for an embedded application couldn't have been easier. Thanks a lot Marcus!
