I’ve  been writing mock draft software since about 2001. First version was written in C++ and mingw, using the standard template library. It’s part of a Sourceforge project. Second version was written in 2007, using Ruby. It’s also in the same Sourceforge project. My last version has been written using the Catalyst framework in Perl and lives on a virtual server on my home desktop.

I’d like to talk a bit more about it, but for now, I have to finish up a presentation on the  Template Toolkit first. I’m also a member of the Atlanta Perl Mongers, and I offered to present this month. For now, though, these are some screenshots of the new Perl version.

Note: the original screenshots date to about Oct 22, 2010. Don’t expect them to resemble a contemporary mock draft.
