On Tuesday, I released version 0.02 of Net::NationalRail::LiveDepartureBoards
to CPAN. So far, no one has complained. This module is probably of
interest only to people in the UK; it looks up which trains are next
to arrive/depart from a particular station.
This release was prompted by a patch sent to me by Ian Dash,
implementing a filtering feature I was too lazy to write myself. If
someone wants to put a fancy GNOME applet around it, I'd be
grateful. ;) I think the next step is to add a nicer OO interface.
My original reason for writing the module was to advertise this SOAP API
that ATOC publishes - it could easily be wrapped in languages other
than Perl. That particular URL was found by inspecting the official
widget for Windows Vista.
