PostgreSQL deals with Binary Large Objects (BLOBs) as if they were files.
Unfortunatly, there isn't a very good perl interface to them. This module gives you an IO handle to the blob so you can use it for handling the file. It is very useful for DB-backed websites as it lets PG handle the locking and what not while you just get on with the business of handling file uploads.
This project has the following developers:
New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.
