Thokbook is a personal library system, written in perl. It is intended
for medium to large individual collections (several thousand books).
With thokbook, you don't need to enter large amounts of information for
each of your books. Just scan its barcode and thokbook will get the
rest of the information from Amazon.
Then you can create web pages so you can list all your books or search
them. You can also check books in and out and record who checked them
So far thokbook has only been tested on Linux and Solaris, but it should
work on any Unix system that has perl. It works with PostgreSQL, MySQL or a flat
5.8.0 or greater, and the following perl
modules (all available from CPAN): DBI,
and one of DBD::Pg, Bundle::mysql
depending on which database you want to use.
There are two parts to Thokbook: a perl module (Thokbook.pm) and a perl
program that forms a command-line interface with the module.
