Mobile agents & perl: Choices

TOM (Transportable Object Model) By James Duncan

  • From http://www.hawk.igs.net/~jduncan/Tom/:

    "TOM, the Transportable Object Module allows you to make perl objects completely transportable, without requiring that class an object belongs to exists on any arbitrary system you transport the object to."

  • From the perldoc:

    "TOM allows you contain objects within a TOM object. This TOM object can then be flattened into a general container which can be passed from machine to machine. The objects stored inside the container can be used on any machine with both Perl and Tom installed."
